Do you want to help save the bees?
11:30AM - BEE SAFARI
Brian Campbell of Blessed Bee Farm will lead a bee safari through the local gardens. Brian will identify honeybees and local bees, discuss their pollination patterns and habits, and talk about what we can do as gardeners and citizens to help them out! We'll meet indoors, then head outside to find some pollinators!
Host Brian Campbell is a Master Beekeeper, bee conservationist, and teacher of The Bee School.
Where? Strathcona Community Centre
Also a one day intensive beekeeping class
June 16, 2013
This is a one day intensive introduction to urban beekeeping with Master Beekeeper Brian Campbell. From bylaws and honeybee biology to essential tools and how to use them, we will also have some hands-on bee time in a hive visiting the bees. Honeybees form a complex super organism that offer many rewards. Once you get up close to these fascinating creatures you’ll want to have a hive or two in your backyard to learn more. Course fees include hand outs and a honeybee disease and pest manual. Protective gear will be provided.
Course fees support Blessed Bee Farm, a Richmond-based pollinator conservation project.
