It is wonderful to hear from so many people who are interested in the
plight of the honey bee and wish to do something about it. Lots of interest has
been expressed in taking our course and this is wonderful news for the bees.Whether it is
a family that wishes to have a beehive in their backyard, an organic farmer
who wishes to pollinate his crops with bees which have been raised
chemical free or people who just wish to have a few hives for their
pleasure to learn more about nature and enjoy a high quality honey
product produced by their own bees, the goodwill and willingness
to do something is amazing. Bello Uccello Apiary will be putting on
their Natural Beekeeping Workshop based on Biodynamic Principles
the long weekend in May (Victoria Day Weekend) and this year we
have planned the workshop for Sunday the 19th and Monday the 20th
so people who are working actually have their Saturday free to relax
and prepare for the Two Day hands-on, intensive workshop that awaits them
on Sunday and Monday.
