    Event description

    There’s more to a jar of honey than just its sweetness. 

    Join Australian Parliament House’s Head Beekeeper, Cormac Farrell for a masterclass exploring how a region’s diverse botanical sources create unique flavours in honey. 

    Discover how to integrate native and honeybees into landscape design through the selection of native and exotic plants, with reference to the Parliament Gardens as an example of a vibrant bee-friendly city. 

    Then indulge in a tasting experience as you try honey sourced from across Canberra’s urban spaces. Including honey and honeycomb made by the busy Parliament House bees. 

    This 1-hour indoor masterclass is suited for beekeepers and gardeners interested in creating bee-friendly hubs, both in their own gardens and in local areas. 

    Bookings essential.
