In the spring of 2015, Edmonton’s city council passed an amendment to permit beekeeping in the city, opening up a whole new world for beekeeper wannabes (no pun intended!).
Once you understand bee basics, the next step toward successful beekeeping is learning to manage your own beehive. Over the course of three hours, you’ll discuss municipal and provincial guidelines, what you’ll need, and how to set up and manage your own backyard beehive. We will cover hive types and tools, where to purchase equipment, licensing hives, different ways of acquiring bees and managing a beehive throughout the season.
