We are pleased to announce that the demand for Beekeeping Courses during the 2014 year was tremendous. The calibre of students at all course levels was of a very high standard, with most of the students now busy keeping bees of their own and showing excellent results. The most popular course was the beginners basic beekeeping course that was made up of six hours of instruction in the laboratory and four hours of practical application in our teaching bee yard. Protective equipment was always supplied for the Field Work. Due to the practical nature of this course, class sizes had to be restricted.
THE COURSES FOR TWENTY FIFTEEN.
The demand for beekeeping courses at various levels of expertise has been overwhelming resulting in all the courses in March, April, May, June and July being fully booked. The next course that still has space available is the Beginners course being run on the 22nd and 23rd of August 2015. Our September courses will be posted shortly. The courses will be presented in Kelowna BC. Please keep in mind that all course members automatically become members of the BBC (Backyard Beekeepers Club) and therefor enjoy discounted pricing on equipment and bees.
Once again your ongoing interest in bees and beekeeping is always appreciated and thank you for a wonderful 2014 season.
The classes and courses that are offered each month starting in March and going through to November 2015, are grouped to allow students to select a class or classes according to their previous knowledge or expertise.
