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

There are four common garden species of Ladybird / Ladybeetle in Australia but over 100 known and over 6000 known worldwide !

They are highly regarded as benificial insects to organic gardeners and farmers.
The common red ladybird predates on aphid and will lay its eggs as close to an aphid population as possible.

Yellow ladybirds eat fungus and are a great support in controlling powdery mildew which is a common issue on cucurbits such as Cucumber and Zucchini

The males reproductive organs (aedeagus) work like a lock and key which means it will be unable to fertilise a ladybeetle of a different species.

So these too love birds are in action just for the fun 😉

Oooo 👀

yep that small python lives in one of my compost piles

I think your a little more game than I. The old saying “distance makes the heart grow fonder” comes to mind.

It was one of my highlights of the year...spending time in the Mullumbumby Gardens with my mother Shelagh Rose 🙂 Not sure if I'd have such a brave smile on standing that close to that python!

Beautiful creature ... very auspicious symbol.
