Come out tomorrow once again for our saturday open house, 1-5.
We will be taking advantage of the great weather to extract and jar some honey.
Meet the MAA Beekeepers, meet the MAA bees!
No prior experience required.
Sorry no poster this week, we have been busy.
Hey Everyone, Great news!
We will be opening the apiary on Saturdays for the rest of the summer for anyone who wants to come! This summer we have only been working at the apiary during the week, which doesn't give an opportunity for everyone to come to the MAA that wants to. So, from now on, we'll be opening our doors from 1:00-5:00 every saturday to for anyone to learn, volunteer, and have fun. Some of the 'have fun' ideas for future Saturdays include potluck style bbqs @5, painting a mural on the barn doors, extracting honey, having a costume party while beekeeping (personal favorite).
Hope to see you on Saturday,
Our workshop Backyard Beekeeping Essentials which we were planning on holding this weekend has been cancelled due to the forecasted rain!
The workshop will be rescheduled for saturday June 8.
This also means that there is still time to register! Registration is possible online here: https://www.mcgill.ca/macdonald/programs/cpd/workshops/beekeeping and check our Courses tab for more information about the workshop here: http://www.maa-mac.com/courses.html.
