    Opened BBQ full of bees and honeycomb

    The July 23rd, Saturday of 2022  is planned for the afternoon  and it’s normally a BBQ outside so it’s most likely in person but we will announce more information close to the day.

    Normally, EDBA meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month but some exceptions are made to line up with conferences.

    The tentative schedule for monthly meetings in 2022 (as of January) are as follows:

    Thursday, October 20

Starting as early as January each year, there are courses offered to introduce Beekeeping to beginners.  The EDBA and Alberta Agriculture offer some of the most well known and respected classes in Edmonton and area.  Another good starting point is to do some reading about Beekeeping for Beginners (found here)
