AFMA Partnership

29 APRIL 2023: The Australian Farmers’ Markets Association is again partnering with the Wheen Bee Foundation for WORLD BEE DAY 2023.

The Bring Your Buzz campaign has been developed specifically to roll out across Australia’s farmers’ markets in May.

Numerous markets ran fabulous market activations last year and markets are again being invited to get involved in this very important campaign to raise awareness of the vital role bees play in our food chain.

World Bee Day is Friday 20 May 2023

All farmers’ markets have a chance to participate between 13 – 21 May 2023 – more like a Bee Week really.
