April 15th to 17th | Fleming College, Lindsay | Tickets: $10-$40 | Lunch optional
Central Ontario Beekeepers Association, in partnership with co-hosts Farms at Work and Fleming College, is pleased to host a weekend with Michael Bush, a well-known pioneer of the treatment-free method of beekeeping from Nebraska, USA.
Michael has travelled around the United States discussing his practical and effective methods for bee hive management. As the author of "The Practical Beekeeper: Beekeeping Naturally", Michael advocates for beekeeping without the use of treatments for pests and diseases. To read more on Michael Bush and his techniques, please visit his website: www.bushfarms.com/bees.htm.
Join us at this 3-day workshop to hear about topics including:
A Year in a Treatment-free Apiary
Four Simple Steps to Healthier Bees Queen Rearing and the “Whole Bee” Concept
The workshop format is geared towards all experience levels—from new beekeepers to those with decades of experience.
I keep hoping that the many herbs that I have flowering in my yard helps keep my neighbor's hives in good health. As much as I love my fresh herbs, I think I grow them mostly for the insects.
