Launceston Beekeepers Support Tarime Beekeepers
The donation of beehives by the Tasmanian Beekeepers Association was so appreciated by the people of Surubu. These hives, and the training that was provided by Western Australian Bee Keeper, David Morrell, during his volunteer trips in 2011 and 2012, will mean that beekeepers in Surubu no longer have to kill their bees every time they collect the honey. This will make such a difference to their livelihoods, which have flow on effects for the whole community and is sustainable. A very big thank you to the Launceston Beekeepers Association. We have set up six bee keeping groups in the Surubu Community.
