Stuart Anderson, Co-Inventor of the Flow Hive
Pollination at the Calyx,
Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens
Saturday 18 November 2017 – 4-6pm
Come and see Stuart Anderson, Inventor of the Flow Hive, amongst the blooms at the largest flower display of its kind in Sydney. Pollination at the Calyx is a fascinating immersion into the world of flowering plants and pollinators. Did you know there are approximately 19,000 species of native pollinators worldwide and more than 1,500 different species in Australia?
Native bees are facing dire threats from habitat loss and pesticide use – up to 37% of species have declined and 9% are facing extinction.
Come and learn about native pollinators and what you can do to help attract them to your garden and support their populations. Stuart will give a personal account of the family’s story that went from invention to global crowdfunding success. Get an insight on the challenging and remarkable journey of bringing the Flow Hive to the world and hear some tips on the use of the Flow Hive.
Visitors to the event will be treated with a special sneak preview of our brand-new creation to help provide homes for native pollinators - the Flow Pollinator House. These beautiful Western Red Cedar Houses are crafted from upcycled Flow Hive timber offcuts and sustainably-sourced bamboo. Stuart will be revealing one of our very first Pollinator Houses at the event, which will then continue to be on display at Pollination at the Calyx - a free floral display, along with a Flow Hive, from now until July 2018.
