Ancient Beekeepers

Learn to keep bees 2020

Two of EDBA’s best beekeepers are once again looking to help train new beekeepers in 2020. The course offered by Malcolm and Craig is not part of EDBA but with their mentorship program and years of experience there is no better course in all of Alberta. We can’t recommend it enough! They will be running beginner beekeeper courses for the 6th year in NE and NW Edmonton.

The complete course will be given on 5 different occasions in 2020 but the final dates will be posted later. In 2019, for example they were on these dates (Jan. 27th, Mar. 2nd, Mar. 23rd, Apr 13th, and May 4th).

Topics covered include:

  1. Urban beekeeping regulations
  2. Location choices and Equipment
  3. Installing bees and queens
  4. What to check inside of a hive
  5. Swarm prevention/creating extra queens
  6. Basic Bee Biology
  7. Mentoring opportunities
  8. Wintering and Treatments
