April 15th - 17th: Treatment-Free Beekeeping Workshop
Central Ontario Beekeepers Association, in partnership with co-hosts Farms at Work and Fleming College, is pleased to host a weekend with Michael Bush, a well-known pioneer of the treatment-free method of beekeeping from Nebraska, USA.
Michael has travelled around the United States discussing his practical and effective methods for bee hive management. As the author of "The Practical Beekeeper: Beekeeping Naturally", Michael advocates for beekeeping without the use of treatments for pests and diseases.

- A Year in a Treatment-free Apiary
