General Meeting with Guest Speaker
February 27 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$5
The Guest Speaker at this meeting will be an amateur apiarist, Barbara Elkins.
Barbara is a Bateau Bay local and an amateur beekeeper who is passionate about local produce and a sustainable and healthy food culture that is based on natural home grown products. For this reason and to stay connected with the local community, Barbara is a regular at local farmers markets all of the Central Coast selling her home made honey.
It is this lovely local community lifestyle, which is very different to that of a big city that Barbara loves about the Central Coast. She loves how easy it is to go to Sydney, but is always very pleased to come home. “It’s just a beautiful place to live. I love it.”
Barbara took up bee keeping about five years ago and sees it as a way to give back to the Central Coast community. She is an avid member of the Amateur Beekeeping Society of the Central Coast and does what she can to promote the great work the organisation is doing.
She visits local schools and retirement villages to educate people about the importance of bees and making sure they understand the important role bees play in nature.
Barbara will be bringing some of her own honey for sale!
