Event description

Description

The Food Action Society (FASNO) is celebrating 10 years in service to our community by doing a four part education series that will be running throughout the summer. Please join us for part 2, where we will be learning about Beekeeping.

Urban beekeeping for beginners: the importance of honey bees in food production and how to get started with bees


Participants at the workshop will learn what is needed to become a beekeeper, from sourcing bees and hive equipment, finding bee friendly plants, setting up a hive, protecting our pollinators and managing honey bee pests in order to produce a delicious crop of honey.


Attendees will take away a greater knowledge of honey bees and a brochure on managing your garden for pollinators. A book on Honey Bee Diseases and Pests will also be available for purchase.


Our instructor is Heather Clay. Heather is passionate about honey bees and has been a beekeeper for over 30 years. Her career in the honey bee industry as a Provincial Apiarist and later CEO of the Canadian Honey Council (CHC) gave her access to experts in the world of honey bees. She is co-editor of a book about Honey Bee Diseases and Pests, and an honorary member of the Canadian Association of Professional Apiculturists.
Since retiring from the CHC she began the Urban Bee Network, a web resource for small scale beekeepers www.urbanbeenetwork.ca


Attendees should bring pen and paper to take notes


Cost: Minimum donation of $25 (if you can give more that's great - all proceeds go to the Food Action Society)
