Are you a talented project manager with excellent communication skills and an interest in helping the honey bee industry?
In this newly created role, you will make a real difference to beekeepers in NSW by coordinating and facilitating access to public land for apiculture (beekeeping). You will coordinate implementation of the recently announced NSW Government policy framework for apiary sites on public land and manage a support desk for beekeepers applying for apiary site permits.
You will be part of a team that is passionate about agriculture and committed to the sustainable growth of the honey bee industry. The NSW DPI team provides education, training, industry development, research, biosecurity and regulatory services to beekeepers across NSW.
The Bega Valley club has used AFB Awareness Month to publicise responsible beekeeping across the region. A story featuring biosecurity officer Fay Steward in the local newspaper urged all beekeepers to inspect their hives this October and register with DPI.
