Introduction to Beekeeping

Please note: The information on this page was valid for 2017, new information is coming.

There are few better ways to start our beekeeping journey than to experience “Beekeepers helping beekeepers!”

This year we plan to run 2 “Introduction to Beekeeping” courses:
1) June 10, 2017 in Estaire, a few minutes south of Sudbury via Highway 69;
2) June 17, 2017 in the Lavigne area, a little over an hour east of Sudbury via Highways 17 (east to Verner) and 64 (south from Verner).
Further details will be given to those who sign up for the course.

The cost for the 1 day course is $60 per person, with a $30 deposit required by those booking a spot for either course.

This is a full day course with a limited number of spaces available.  Please book sooner rather than later and arrive promptly on the day of your course.
