Our founding father

Os Dent

In September2000 Os perceived an idea to form a group of beekeepers in the Sunshine Coast. His aim was to share knowledge of beekeeping and assist others getting started in the craft. To this end he called a meeting of interested parties and formed the Sunshine Coast Beekeeper Group. Later the group became a sub-branch of the Queensland Beekeepers Association.

Os presented a starter pack to the group as a handout for beginners titled

Backyard Beekeeping. This document is very informative and is recommended reading for all.
