Luke’s Bees on Gardening Australia

Posted September 2, 2019 in News, Student News By Community Relations

Luke de Laeter (Year 11) was invited on to Gardening Australia to speak to Josh Byrne about his passion – keeping honey bees!

We have been following Luke’s journey over the last few years and it is great to see his passion turn into a dedicated business, selling honey and running incursions for school kids to learn about the benefits of beekeeping.

Luke got hooked on apiary when he was just 14, when he got a hive and a nucleus (founding colony of bees) as a present from his mum who is Wesley College’s Sustainability Teacher.

Luke says ‘I’ve got a passion and I want to share knowledge about the environment, and I want to educate others about the problems bees are facing.’ He says he got into it because he’s always been interested in the environment, and ‘it’s a bit of a different hobby…it gets you outside, it’s very different from gaming or that sort of thing.’
