ABC Field Days Events

All advertised Field Days and meetings are held. If the weather is unsuitable to open hives, an alternative programme is held under cover. We provide tea and coffee at lunchtime.
For lunch bring your own or something to share. Some hives will be opened in the morning and others at the conclusion of the talks.

Field days are held on the  second Saturday of the month at the ABC apiary in Point Chevalier, public are welcome to join us on these days.
