Hiveworld.ca’s Meet The Beekeeper Field Days are a great way for Edmonton-area beekeepers to gain hands-on experience and have their questions answered in a working bee yard.
Advance registration is required, but free. Sessions run from April thru October, and there is protection from the weather when needed.
Our teaching bee yard is at Hiveworld Hands-On, 52043 Range Road 231, Sherwood Park, AB T8B 1A2, just 5 km south of Sherwood Park.
Weekly on Saturday starting at 11am, meet hiveworld staff and our commercial bee biologist for up-to-date nectar flow information, forcast weather information and how this will effect the bees. Specific topic for our hands-on portion will be sent to you prior to the dates you register for. We cover management, mites and disease management, how to get honey, managing your hive as a pollination tool etc.
Bring your bee suit and gloves, a freind, family or interested neighbour!
