    2022 Beekeeping course - Experience the Magic of Honey Bees this Year!

    Two Ways to Attend!
    In Person at the Norfield Grange or Via Zoom

    Keeping a colony or two of honey bees offers a window into a fascinating  corner of the ecosystem. Beekeeping is an engaging, hands-on hobby with a  host of rewards. It can supply you with plenty of honey for family and friends,  as well as increase your garden’s productivity by ensuring adequate pollination.  Perhaps just as important, though - as any beekeeper will tell you - is that  spending time with these amazing creatures can be a truly gratifying  experience. And there is no better way to introduce your children to nature’s  wonders than the gentle honey bee!  

    The classes include instruction on how to assemble the hive, the tools and  materials commonly used, how to install bees, inspect the colony, and much  more. Basic bee biology and hive sociology will be covered, along with how to  keep bees healthy, harvest honey, and get the colonies ready for winter. There  will be both lectures and demonstrations, and plenty of opportunities to ask  questions. The sessions will be recorded, so you can watch – or re-watch –  afterward.  

    Join the members of the Back Yard Beekeepers Association in a course  designed to provide all the information needed to get started keeping bees. You  can begin to experience the wonders of working with one of nature’s most  amazing creatures this spring!
