The Urban Beekeeping Series is taught by seasoned beekeeping instructors and long-time members of the urban beekeeping group, Toronto Beekeeper’s Cooperative. This series gives you hands-on experience with managing hives, as well as provides you with simple steps to support honeybees and other important pollinators in the city, whether you intend to keep your own bees or just enjoy learning about their care.
Including in-class and “in-hive” components, this series provides grounding in basic beekeeping.
Instructors: Mylee Nordin, Cathy Kozma and Oliver Couto.
Group A: PG17W20 & Group B: PG17W21 – Session 5 of 8: The Honey Harvest
Rain date: Sunday, July 30, noon to 4 p.m.
This is the most exciting (and sticky!) time of the beekeeping season when bees and beekeepers share the bounty. Learn how to sort and pull honey from frames, remove wax cappings, extract liquid honey from honey¬combs, clean frames and return spun frames to the hive.
