What do we know about bees?
Claire has been a bee keeper for over ten years and is currently studying Certificate 3 in Beekeeping at Tocal College.
The course has been gratefully funded by a bursury Claire won as the Victorian winner and national runner up of the 2019 AgriFutures Rural Women's Award.
Her award was in support of Claire's desire to breed a range of genetically diverse queen bees that are healthy and adaptable in a variety of climates, to address declining bee colony numbers.
Where’s The Good Life Farm?
The Good Life Farm Co is located in Kyneton, approximately 1.25 hours’ drive north west from Melbourne. It’s a beautiful drive and a fantastic town to explore before or after the workshop.
