Due to COVID-19 and government recommendations, all Beginner Beekeeping Courses and Meet the Beekeepers sessions will be offered online.

Beekeeping Courses will be offered through ZOOM, a videoconferencing app. All courses are live and interactive. You can still ask questions and learn everything you need to know this beekeeping season. Our beekeeping season is about to get underway, and are here to get you off the ground with the information you need. If you have any questions, please contact us by email.

Join us from spring through autumn to learn about beekeeping throughout the seasons. Our experts will cover different topics every session. These sessions are live and interactive, and we are happy to answer your questions. To catch up on previous sessions just visit our video library!
