Beeyond The Veil Beekeeper Training

It has been our great pleasure over the past 7 years, meeting and working with new beekeepers and we can’t wait for the season to begin.

To be part of a enthusiastic group, from those tentative first steps in learning the language of bees to finishing the course casually handling colony’s with an informed eye is no small thing.

If you have long held a desire to start keeping bees in your yard, then we are running the following courses this year, both online and in the classroom / apiary:

• Zoom Introduction to Bee Keeping
• Classroom Based Introduction to Bee Keeping
• Monday Beginners Course
• Sunday Beginners Course
• Intermediate courses

Please visit the Beeyond The Veil website for full course details and registration or phone (902) 973-1149

We look forward to hearing from you.
