Oh wow! Here we go again! Year 3 of ABC Bee’s Beginners Beekeeping Workshops! We are at a new and fresh venue this year, and we are super excited to already have over 10 registrations for Calgary’s February workshop! This year Eliese Watson will be teaching you everything you need to know about honey bees, 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 Community Hive Collaborative Purchase of honeybees gaining access to 75 colonies/nucs in 2012, you too can get local bees and be a beekeeper in 2012.
We are only offering this workshop in Red Deer once and in Calgary twice for the 2012 year, so if you want to take this workshop, register now! The course comes with full snacks and hot lunches (with dietary concerns respected and made primarily with local and organic food) as well as Beekeeping in Western Canada text book ($30 value).
