Wisdom from Beekeepers seminar with special guests Nov 23

Submitted by Laura Cameron-Delisle/Handout photos



he Chilliwack Beekeeping Community presents, "Wisdom from Beekeepers" Learning Seminar & Community Resource Expo November 23 from 1-4 PM at Yarrow Community Hall.


Listen & learn from a panel of experts who will share their beekeeping wisdom, experience, and helpful tips.


In the beekeeping world, there's a saying along the lines of "if you ask 3 beekeepers the same question, you'll get 4 answers", so those attending the event are in for a treat! 


Special guest speakers are all Master Beekeepers and include; Scott Gordon from Natural Bee Apiaries; Jerry Awram from Honeyview Farms and Lindsay Dault with Urban Bee Supplies.


After the seminar portion of the event, guests are invited to stay for a Mix & Mingle to connect with other beekeepers, sample local honey from this year's harvest, learn about community resources, browse items for sale and enjoy the refreshments provided.


Registration and a small cost is involved ($20 Early Birds, $25 Regular) and space is limited!


What makes this event so valuable is that;

It's the perfect time of year to learn about & prepare for next year's beekeeping season (for those taking up the practice in 2015)

It's an excellent opportunity to brush up on beekeeping skills and to answer some of those tough questions around keeping honeybees (for already experienced beekeepers)

It's a great way to network your business if you make & sell beekeeping equipment, sell harvested products, or simply have a passion for bee-themed crafts or artwork.

The Yarrow Community Hall is located at 4670 Community St., Yarrow BC.
