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)

Words are like bees, some create honey while others leave a sting.
