Beginning Beekeeper Course  

Saturday, January 26

This course is taught by some of the most experienced beekeepers around.

The course covers city regulations, equipment, starting hives, tasks to be done each season, basic bee biology, treatments and winter preparations. Mentoring will occur in spring and summer.

Mentoring sessions are included which take place in the spring and summer for course graduates.

This course runs independently of the EDBA.  Malcolm and Craig will be running a beginner beekeeper course for the 5th year in NE Edmonton.  They are both highly respected beekeepers with many, many years of experience.

The course is normally taught in NE Edmonton.  The exact location will be announced closer to the event.  The cost of the course is $140. Graduates of the course can take part in the optional free mentoring sessions on most weeks between June 1stand late August in bee yards just north of Edmonton.
