September is Bee Aware Month. What better time to celebrate our native bees that fly under the radar?

Did you know that we have 28 species of native bees here in New Zealand? Do you know what they look like and how you can help them thrive?

This is your chance to hear from an expert, Dr Ngaire Hart.

Hear:
Ngaire will discuss how to identify native bees, the korero of insects - in terms of whakapapa, and Rongoā and the healing aspects relating to bees.

Watch:
'A Ghost in the Making: Searching for the Rusty-patched Bumble Bee'

Natural history photographer Clay Bolt is on a multi-year quest to tell the stories of North America's native bees, and one elusive species – the Rusty-patched Bumble Bee – has become his white whale.

This delightful little film is a lovely introduction to solitary bees in all their beauty.

For the Love of Bees is excited to be collaborating with Live Lightly, Ellen Melville Centre and Lily Hirsch to bring you Films for the Future - A Hopeful Film Series. This is the seventh event in the series - we hold one on the third Friday of each month.

This series offers you a movie experience partnered with the chance to meet a local hero working on a real project in your town. You will learn a real skill on the night that you can take away and implement immediately.

Get Inspired - Learn - Take Action.
Local project speaker to be announced.

Bring a jumper just in case it gets a bit chilly. Some of the seats can feel a bit firm after a while, so you're welcome to bring a cushion.
