Perth General Meeting

General meetings are held on the first Thursday each month except December and January, starting with our Beginners’ Corner at 6:30pm, designed to instruct new beekeepers on various basic aspects of beekeeping and allows for questions to be asked of the experienced beekeeper presenting on the night.  Parallel to that, we also feature a Discussion Group with Stan Taylor, also at 6:30, for more experienced beekeepers to share their insights and discuss what they have learned over many years in the field. 

This is followed by our General Meeting from 7:30 – 9.00pm

We have great guest speakers, practical demonstrations and workshops designed to benefit the art of beekeeping through enjoyment and knowledge.

$3.00 covers light refreshments and your chance to win a door prize.
