Introduction to Backyard Beekeeping Workshop

by Community Forests International on May 5, 2010

Introduction to Backyard Beekeeping (June 19 - 20) -  Sackville, NB

This summer, Community Forests International will be offering a beginners course in small scale apiculture with an emphasis on "natural" management techniques, hands-on practice, and basic honey bee biology and behaviour. Participants will alternate between classroom instruction and discussion, and actual demonstrations and individual practice working with the bees.

The two day course is designed to give participants sufficient knowledge and confidence to begin their own adventure as keepers of bees. Instructors possess a combined 57 years of experience working with bees, as well as 7 years of instruction and extension experience.

Couples and children welcome and encouraged. The cost of the workshop is by donation (recommended at 135$ for the individual, $200 a couple). Space is extremely limited as this course offers participants a very high degree of hands-on exposure. Contact info(at)forestsinternational.org or call (514) 839-0546 for more details.
