Bowral Beekeeping with Hamish Ta-mé
- September 8, FaceTime
Spring has officially sprung in the Highlands, which is the perfect time to introduce bees into your garden. Bowral beekeeper Hamish Ta-mé can show you how to make your space bee-friendly, and different hives you can install at home. He offers weekly FaceTime sessions and will walk you through the process.
You can book a FaceTime session with Hamish by emailing email@example.com.
Build your own village full of tiny houses
- Every Thursday in September, Zoom, 6pm - 7:30pm
You can create a village full of tiny ceramic houses with Elph Ceramics from home. The business will send you the tools and materials for the job! Do not worry - you will get air-dry clay, so you won't need a kiln.
Bookings for each class are finalised five days prior, so kits can be sent out in time.
Railway Street Farmers Market
- September 9, Corners of Railway Street and Spring Street, Moss Vale, 3pm - 5:30pm
Grab some seasonal produce harvested by local growers this week. Highlanders also have the opportunity to meet the growers at the market.
