Humble Hive Collective's Benjamin Durie, a Public School Principal in northern NSW and Podcast Producer and Ad-Man Jye Smith, Founder of You're Good, Get Better, have joined forces to save the bees one episode at a time. They have launched Australia's first beekeeping podcast, Honey, I'm Home, for anyone who wants to start an apiary or learn more about these incredible little workers who have a huge impact on our planet. They have released the first four episodes with a few more ready to go, so be sure to listen, subscribe and share on iTunes and Spotify, or wherever you find your podcasts.
Each episode sees this dynamic duo delve into the weird, wonderful and informative world of beekeeping. They will be joined by bee experts across all levels of beekeeping, including government leaders, university professors, doctors and professional association leaders. They're committed to educating people about the crucial environmental impact of bees and beekeeping in a new and entertaining way. Helping every Australian understand why it's important to protect one of Australia's most important insect, the Bee.
There are thousands of local bee colonies right here in Australia needing your help. The focus here is on getting every single Australian involved in the movement as an advocate, or an apiarist with a hive of their own. Early episodes of the podcast now available, feature a who's-who of the bee world, including -
Mark Page, Bee Biosecurity Officer Surveillance, Department of Planning, Industry and Environment
Rod Bourke, Bee Biosecurity Officer Surveillance, New South Wales Department of Primary Industries
Elizabeth Frost, Technical Specialist – Honey Bees at New South Wales Department of Primary Industries
Arthur Garske, Public Officer of the Amateur Beekeepers Association of NSW
Dr Rosalyn Gloag, Lecturer in Evolutionary Biology, School of Life and Environmental Sciences Sydney University
Neighbours of mine have a Native Bee hive.
They gave me a small jar of honey (filtered many times) as a thankyou for looking after their three hens and the family cat while there were away away on holidays.
Lucky me, eggs AND honey.
