    The Royal Australian Mint has released a new coin, and there's a special buzz about it.

    Marking 200 years since the insect's introduction to Australia, the $2 collector's coin features two honey bees, commemorating "both the remarkable creatures and conscientious beekeepers".

    Sophie’s Patch Easter Open Garden will be taking place on the 16th, 17th and 18th of April this year. The BSSA has a stall at each of Sophie's events where we sell our honey and talk to the public about beekeeping. It is a lot of fun. Sophie is a valued patron of the BSSA. 

    We are looking for volunteers who are available to help over the 3 days. Time slots we need to fill are 10.00 am to 1.00 pm, and 1.00 pm to 4.30 pm. The address is 394 Springs Rd, Mt Barker. You are able to enter Sophie’s free of charge as a volunteer. We endeavour to have 3 volunteers per shift, so that there are opportunities for all volunteers to have a break, go to the toilet or just look around. It is a wonderful couple of hours.

    See the event on Sophie's website for more information about the open garden. 

    If you can help please contact Trisha at trisha.blanks@me.com. Many thanks!

    Hi, my name is Serina Biddle.

    I am currently doing an Apitherapy certificate, via an internet course offered by Dr Stefan Stangaciu through Apitherapy.com

    I am currently working on my thesis Honey Detox Massage and its benefits. I would like to run a study with approximately 10 people to start with, who would be willing to undertake a Honey Detox Massage and give feedback via a questionnaire. All records and documentation will be kept confidential. Participants will be required to fill out a consent form.

    My thesis will be presented to the Apitherapy community at conferences.

    Honey Detox Massage isn’t like a normal massage. Honey is used as a medium on the back and draws out the toxins with help of six movements of the hands similar to cupping from the sebaceous glands in our skin. It can also be used to aid in removing cellulite. I am currently learning this procedure, and I would like to gain experience through practice and
    possibly learn what I can to improve my technique.

    My contact details are Serina Biddle 0405490223, or email clearviewhoney@outlook.com if you would like to learn more or participate in the study.

    Many Blessings
    Serina
