Beginner/refresher courses coming your way

Edmonton and area enthusiasts are invited to register for a couple of courses coming up in the next short while. 

A one-day session for beekeepers in Edmonton, Spruce Grove, Sherwood Park and other parts of the region will be held at the Radisson Hotel and Convention Centre Edmonton, 4520-76 avenue. Mark your calendar for Friday, February 22, 8:30 a.m. 

This course is for those considering beekeeping, and those looking for a refresher. It will be an ideal opportunity to learn some proven approaches to successful beekeeping on the smaller scale, as well as share experiences with other beekeepers and ask the questions that are top of mind right now - especially with the very cold weather the region has been experiencing. 

A two-day course that qualifies participants to apply for a City of Edmonton backyard beekeeping permit will be split over two days, March 1 and March 15. 

This course takes an in-depth look at bee biology and colony behaviour, urban beekeeping regulations for the City of Edmonton, managing your bees throughout all four seasons, and dealing with challenges that may arise. Both days of the course will be held at the Radisson Hotel and Convention Centre Edmonton, 4520-76 avenue. 

We recommend early registration for all Hiveworld.ca courses. Participants will receive a $25 gift certificate for use on any Hiveworld.ca merchandise. There will also be a 25% discount on any auto-flow super ordered by participants on the day of the course. And of course, you can be sure you are learning from experienced beekeepers who live here and want to help you succeed with the bees, the equipment and the knowledge that will work for you.
