Mmmmm this batch of divine summer mixed blossom honeycomb will hit Santos Organics shelves today.

This is the very first harvest of honey from this colony which was a swarm I captured just a few months ago at the Mullumbimby Community Gardens

hyperlocal honey goodness
Would be great to think that our honey could be getting consumed within the bees forage range.

Comment on Facebook

Been saying that for years beats paying treeloppers thousands to lopp trees on streets children can pick morning snack on way to school

Maybe this time councils will listen, it's now a stupid idea and makes for a beautiful street scape all year round.

It will all end up worm ridden and rotting in the gutter.

This is how it is in many parts of Aotearoa (New Zealand) it’s beautiful, free, educational and feeds people!

But we should also plant natives so the wildlife can eat all year too🌸😜

As long as the trees and fruit are maintained and don't become pest-or-disease infested - go for it!

The importers won’t let it happen, specially with the backing of this hideous government 🤮🤮

The community tried that here.. Till the council came and removed all the plants and trees

There are so many helpful Trees and Plants, include all, per area and neighbourhoods.

Healing Self - Healing Land

Fresh from travels, learnings and projects in the Australia, USA, UK and India, Charlie and Bridget are excited to offer this workshop – experiences, insights, inspirations and practical applications.

"In our often deeply challenging times it has almost become radical to live life centred around principles and practices of care; cares for health of self, community and planet. The lists of harms being done to, and experienced by, people, communities, other species & ecosystems grows and grows. This interactive workshop will identify and build participants’ own self-care and land-care practices as we explore the vitally important work of co-healing people and planet."

Please bring a healthy lunch dish to share.
Tea and snacks will be provided.

Fantastic to have support and resources from Santos Organics and their customers to help build and develop our Mullumbimbees Natural Beekeeping group.

Meetings are the first Sat of the month on site at the Mullumbimby Community Gardens 9-12
All ages and skill levels welcome.

Mullum SEED IncCongratulations community you've funded another healthy environmental project.

A project by Mullumbimbees dedicated to increase the learning of how bees contribute to our environment. Focusing on the ways they improve and amplify food security through maximising pollination of crops and edible plants that are essential for a healthy productive garden.

~ This will be achieved through sharing cumulative experiences, skills, and knowledge with the community through social media discussion, researched best practices, meetings, visits to schools and interested groups, and workshops that offer practical learning experiences and educate the community on the importance of biosecurity and the damage to both flora and fauna caused by pesticides.

~ There is significant research on the critical role bees play in creating and sustaining our natural environment. There is also significant research on the bee crisis we are facing with a world-wide phenomenon called colony collapse and the introduction of fatal diseases such as American Foul Brood which have had a costly and devastating effect on Australian bees. This project will enhance all participants’ understanding of the Integrated and symbiotic role that exists between bees and the environment. It will improve the quality and quantity of food production within our established community gardens and it has the potential to improve our local environment in the district. It will provide support, confidence and skills for those who are considering becoming bee-keepers.

~ Through a range of activities and shared learning experiences we aim to collaboratively develop a group of skilled and knowledgeable members who have the skills to work with bees to improve the environment. They will be able to use and borrow equipment for their own beekeeping purposes and share their knowledge with others, increasing local community understanding of the significance of bees in sustaining our environment.

Australia day - Planting Lomandras at Shed Site, Community Gardens with BBQ after 9 -11am this Friday 26th of January

Hi Everybody,

Keeping the energy going on the Shed and the site.
We are going to be planting Lomandras around the site edge and having a BBQ on Australia Day this Friday from 9am to 11am with a sausage sizzle afterwards.
It would be great to see as many of you down there as possible to give a hand and for you all to be part of the Shed set up.
Big thanks to Kelvin Daly for all the work he's contributed so far in organising the site and the plants and to Ken, Keith, Paul and Phil for all the work in deconstructing and reconstructing.
We've also had some great walk in contributions of people volunteering their time this week and last.

Please let as many people know in your network as possible (Guys and girls) and help us create another great event.

Let's keep the ball rolling and build a great community resource for all.

All welcome, looking forward to hearing your ideas, as we plant some lomandras of what positive impacts we can have on the local community
