Paperbark will be starting one of its bursts of flowering soon, with reasonable pollen and normally some honey. The only problem is that hereabouts it also tends to be a rain time. Hence, the indigenous name of Bellbowrie, rain tree.
It will soon be time to be looking for the grey ironbark and red gum to show bud if they are to perform in the coming season. To paraphrase a well-known politician, "it is all about the grey ironbark".
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.
