BEECHWORTH is abuzz as Bee School launches its spring program this weekend.

Bee School by Beechworth Honey reopens on Saturday.

Visitors learn about the role of honeybees in food production and pick up skills to inspire a new hobby.

Beechworth Honey founder and fourth-generation beekeeper Jodie Goldsworthy said she was passionate about conserving Australia’s beekeeping industry.

“Australia’s honeybees pollinate two-thirds of our fresh food,” she said.

“While it’s really easy to think of honey when you think of bees, honey is just the delicious byproduct.

“We need to keep beekeepers in business, to keep bees healthy and doing their job of pollinating fruits, nuts, seeds and vegetables.”

Bee School opens weekends and in school holidays.
