NATURAL BEEKEEPING WORKSHOP 2013 INFORMATION

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
