Beginner Beekeeper’s Hands-On Course

$160.00

This course requires no prior knowledge or previous experience working with honeybee colonies. This course is for ages 13+. Safety and individual comfort are extremely important as we will provide head-to-toe protective gear for each participant. You may choose not to wear it at your own discretion.

Here at deGroots Apiaries/Farm we’ve been working with honeybees and colony hive management since 2010, teaching us the vital knowledge of beekeeping successfully in a zone three location. This course will teach you how to beekeep successfully in our cold Canadian climate, biology of the honeybee, hive workings, seasonal management, successful over-wintering techniques, honey flow and production, disease management, and see how we incorporate our farm to aid our honeybees.

In the Beginner Beekeepers course, all introductory beekeeping techniques will be shown and taught with much hands-on teaching, as we explore and dissect a full colony beehives here in our home apiary.

This is a one-day, intensified course from 9 am to 4 pm. Please arrive 15 minutes early. Please bring boots/shoes to wear during our bee yard sessions and your own lunch.

Gear is provided by deGroots Apiaries.
