Mt. Glenn Locke of Coramba Apiculture has been beekeeping since he was a teenager in the early 1980s.
Warwick High School’s agriculture department kept a few beehives, and beekeeping became a course. Glenn’s Agriculture teacher Jim Caird gave him a nucleus colony, and so began the addiction.
Glenn’s parents helped him buy some used equipment, and on their 10-acre hobby farm they built a small apiary.
The hobby was put on hold due to interstate work, but the return to beekeeping had always been in the works.
