Our bees have arrived at Bass, and our Bee Keeping Masterclasses are full! All Masterclass tickets were snapped up the very first day the September eNews went out, so we are running 2 sessions, and have a waiting list. Obviously, we aren’t the only ones excited to have these new little critters in our River Garden!
They were delivered by Robert Fransen of Sweet Bee Honey in late October as an established hive, already making honey and working like a well-oiled machine. They have spent time getting used to their new surroundings and are already pollinating Bass and surrounds.
We will be sure to provide regular updates on our bee friends and share the knowledge as we learn how to care for bees.

Based on the six-day FarmPlan21 course, the course has been condensed to a three-day course. It provides an opportunity for landholders to develop a property plan based on ecological and economic factors.
Recently over 20 landowners and landcare support staff from West Gippsland participated in a 9 week Master Tree Growers program. The program proved to be an amazing opportunity for all participants to increase their knowledge, engage with other like-minded people and develop ideas and actions for their own properties.
The second Phillip Island Landcare Group community tree planting event for 2018 is upon us. Following on from the success of the first tree planting event we encourage you to join us at this exciting event. If your interested in planting trees, meeting new people and sharing a well earned lunch then this event is for you.
Story from Isabel Rooks Year 9 Wonthaggi Secondary College.
The best part, for me, about helping at the Bunny Boiler Landcare dinner is the contented feeling I got when helping out with a cause that is greater than oneself.
The other best part was meeting the many wonderful people out there who are happy to help and do their part for the environment. Some of these people were a group of my friends and we became the Bunny Helpers for the night. Our jobs varied, covering the preparation, cashiers, waitresses and raffle masters. We all took up the roles gladly and wore our little pink bunny rabbit ears with pride.
The Bunny Boiler is an event held every year, this time at the North Pier Hotel.
