Come and join in the celebrations for our last meeting of the year.
2pm - Whats happening in my hive?
Followed by our monthly Speaker - Simon Turner - Malaika Honey in Uganda
Australian beekeeper Simon Turner established Malaika Honey in Uganda in 2006 with the aim of developing a sustainable beekeeping industry. Malaika Honey is a social enterprise and has a wide range of international partners and supporters including the UN Industrial Development Organisation, Jane Goodall Institute and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
Malaika Honey provides farmers throughout Uganda with the beekeeping training, equipment and tools to become self-sufficient producers of high-quality honey and hive products. Malaika has also developed a retail and online market for beekeeping equipment that enables the farmers to become small-middle income earners. He has written a guidebook that focuses on transitional beekeeping methods using Kenyan Top Bar beehives.
Simon Turner will be our guest speaker at our monthly meeting on 27th November, 2022. He is going to talk about Malaika Honey's work over the past 16 years and its future.
