Learn the art and science of beekeeping, through a mix of classroom and hands-on learning. Our beginner beekeeping workshop will give you the knowledge you need to get started keeping honeybees. Topics include: introduction to honeybee biology, beekeeping equipment, seasonal hive management, bee diseases, and Ontario regulations and resources. In the hands-on portions of the day, you will learn how to inspect a beehive and handle frames of bees.

If wearing a veil, long sleeved, light colored and light material clothing is suggested. You can purchase beekeeping equipment ahead of time at our sister company Ottawa Beekeeping Supplies.
