Sponsorship: Tasmanian Beekeepers Association
Shaw Contracting recently provided sponsorship to the northern branch of
the Tasmanian Beekeeping Association, assisting with a gravel base for a Leatherwood site near Hellyer Gorge.
The members took care of equipment to spread and level the gravel on-site and were grateful of the new base to renew access to the site and allow secure footing to place beehives on. A maximum of 50 hives are placed on the site from Christmas until Easter to access the abundant Leatherwood trees and honey, world famous for its unique flavour.
