Oh wow! Here we go again! Year 3 of A.B.C’s Beginners Beekeeping Workshops and we are offering our first summer offering, with a hands-on beekeeping component oon June 23rd and 24th! We are going to be having the course at Calgary’s own urban farm, The AREA, this year. In June, Eliese Watson will be teaching you everything you need to know about honeybees, their health, urban management practices and seasonal care! Eliese has been beekeeping all over North America, mentoring with Corwin Bell in Colorado and Sam Comfort in upstate New York (not to mention some bees on rooftops of NYC), and is a passionate and well-versed beekeeper for top-bar hive and warre management. Plus, with the development of The Communtiy Hive, we are gaining more ground for you to access swarmed bees and find mentors and new beekeeper eager for helpers!
