Honeybees: Absolute Beginner Class

This workshop features the ABCs of keeping HONEYBEES! This gentle introduction to bees is for anyone interested in beehives OR getting ready to host or handle honeybees in the city.

Start your beekeeping journey HERE! Whether you love honey, are amazed by honeybees, want to enhance your garden or want to become a beekeeper, this “first step” is a worthwhile one. This four-hour introduction to recreational beekeeping will get you familiar with most topics faced by “backyard beekeepers” in Vancouver, Burnaby and beyond.

Starting at $150 per person
Next class: Sunday, Feburary 23, 12pm-4pm

"The Basic Beekeeping class was SO GOOD! I learned so much and can't wait to get started this Spring!"

Honeybees: Beginners and Beyond the Basics

Ready for Springtime? Want some reminders about what to do next? Need some tips from a Master Beekeeper? Follow this formula for successful beekeeping!

This workshop is for "Beginner" to "Novice" Beekeepers but is totally suitable for those with 0-5 hives already. If you have a little experience with beekeeping already but still feel you need help - this class is perfect for you.

We'll cover some of the basics as well as a few more advanced techniques. This six-hour class includes a live inspection (scheduled for Spring 2020, weather permitting). Book today!

Starting at $225 per person, including two publications (value of $55)
Next class: Saturday February 1, 10am-4pm

"Thanks for the refresher course! It's been a few years since I last kept bees so I needed to re-learn some of the basics. And the stuff about colony collapse and pesticides was really good too."

Families who Beekeep together...

This fun and casual workshop features an introduction to the honeybee, products of the hive and hands-on activities that will help kids of all ages understand the value of honeybees, mason bees and other non-stinging pollinator species.

Parents and children, teachers and classmates can learn together about the nutritional value of honey, how versatile beeswax is and what bees mean to neighbourhoods, eco-systems and society at large.

Try to spot the queen bee in an actual observation hive (if available). This class may lead to becoming a future beekeeper!

Starting at $100 per family (up to 4 people)
Next class: Saturday January 25, 1:30-3:30pm

"Thanks for answering all of my questions about the differences between mason bees and honeybees! I had no idea how easy it seems."
