Welcome to the website of Ballarat Regional Beekeepers Inc.
Ballarat Regional Beekeepers Inc. was formed in 2015. We meet monthly, to share our interest in, and knowledge about beekeeping. Some of our members are ‘professional’ beekeepers, whereas most of us are amateur ‘backyard’ beekeepers.
The focus in the group is to support each other in beekeeping, and to provide education and ‘hands on’ learning opportunities at the actual hives.
We will also work with Councils and Government authorities to help with swarm management and biosecurity issues.
Ballarat Regional Beekeepers Inc. members range in age from 10 years up to 75 years. Beekeeping is for people of all ages!
We are working collaboratively with schools in our region, and aim to establish project hives in schools, as happens overseas in UK and USA.
Beekeeping is crucial for our food supply, and with many environmental threats and climate change creating challenges for bee populations, we are doing what we do to sustain these vital and beautiful creatures.
…and did I mention how good the honey tastes, when it has come from your own beehive? Our members are also creators of beeswax products.
If you are interested in becoming involved with Ballarat Regional Beekeepers Inc., please get in contact with us as detailed in this website.
…and to those already involved….
