Botanical Bazaar Wrap-up

And as you know, we were recently at the Botanical Bazaar on 3 September. It was certainly a packed house for when Stuart Anderson spoke, and our stand was busy all day! Everyone loved the ‘Flowservation Hive’ as it was a chance to see how the Flow Frames work up close.

It was a perfect spring day to celebrate all things nature. More than 5,000 people attended and enjoyed the wide range of speakers, displays, stalls and activities on urban gardening and sustainable living. Well done to Stacey and the team for coordinating such a fantastic event that makes such a positive impact.

We would like to extend our thanks to Maree from the Gold Coast Amateur Beekeepers Society who joined our stall for the day. It’s a good idea for anyone who is new to beekeeping to meet with, and join their local beekeeping club, so it was wonderful to have Maree join us and connect with people interested in taking up beekeeping on the Gold Coast.
