There’s a significant buzz zzz zzz at the Embassy of Slovenia in Canberra. It has set up a special hand-painted beehive ahead of international World Bee Day on 20 May, which marks the birthday of the pioneer of modern beekeeping Anton Janša. “Some would say that he was to beekeeping what Newton was to gravity” says Slovenia's Ambassador to Australia Jurij Rifelj.
