About

Over the past 5 years in Tasmania we have struggled immensely through the summers with extreme bushfires, this previous summer loosing over 190,000 hectares of forest. With this comes an absolutely devastating impact on the bees as many hives have been burnt and the trees they once used for pollination and gathering nectar are no longer exist.

 My goal is to set up 20 hives in the first year on over 50 acres of natural bushland and at my home although in town is surrounded by acres of bushland. Then in the future set more up amongst the community and in low socioeconomic school gardens etc and teach the younger generation and people around me about the importance of bees and our environment. 

Growing up with severe allergic asthma ive always been very conscious of my carbon footprint, gardening and giving back to the world I live in. with the sales of bee products I will aim to purchase more hives off you guys and plant fruit trees and dig a bigger dam on the land.

Risks and challenges

I have written to the Department of State Growth and the Department of Agriculture and Water Recourses and grants aren't available in Tasmania or other parts of Australia for Beekeepers or Agriculture in Tasmania. Absolutely devastating! I'm not in this for the profits. I have a daughter and I want her and the generations after her to see the world I've seen!
