Beekeeping Courses and Dates for Year 2020

Once again we were pleased to see a tremendous increase in the demand for Beekeeping Courses presented during 2019. 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 Beekeeping Course that was made up of five hours of instruction in the laboratory and five hours of hands on, practical application in our teaching bee yard. Protective equipment is always supplied for the Field Work. Due to the practical nature of this course, class sizes have to be restricted.

All the courses are presented in Kelowna Vic Macdonald and course members become part of the BBC Backyard Beekeepers Club and can then enjoy special pricing on bees and equipment.
