Our Canterbury Hub encompasses southern Marlborough, Canterbury, northern Otago, Westland and Chatham Island.Our membership includes a diverse range of beekeeping operations, many hobbyists and occupations.
Considering the mix of our membership and the area we encompass; much thought is put into meeting programmes.We usually have five meetings a year with 25-50 attending, plus our main event the Beekeepers’ Day Out.
BEEKEEPERS’ DAY OUT
IMPROVING BEE HEALTH & SUSTAINABLE HIVE PRODUCTION
PLUS, TRADE DISPLAYS
STEWART BUILDING, LINCOLN UNIVERSITY
This full day, over the last four years indicating great vibe, is excellent bang for your buck.Currently our aim is 150 seats (if we go over 150 reasonably early, we are in the supa duppa wonderful position to adapt).Feedback from last year’s event, indicates that 150 seats is highly feasible. Full day of approximately 16 speakers covering a variety of subjects, with much Q&A and discussion.Speakers include hobbyist and commercial beekeepers, recognised scientific community, and reputable market sector.There is something for everyone in this year’s programme. The information delivered by most speakers is transferable to hobbyist or commercial operations.Programme and trade display space available late February.Watch this space.
