bee school

This past weekend, I attended beekeeping classes, given by master beekeeper Brian Campbell (Blessed Bee Apiaries). ¬†The course was interesting,¬†informative and engaging. Brian is an excellent instructor. He’s exceedingly knowledgeable, has a gentle and ¬†respectful manner for his students and his charges (the bees), and he has a great sense of humour! A weekend well spent with theory and practice. We still have the practicum to look forward to, more first hand experience on handling honeybees!

We even got to witness a new drone bee emerge out of its cell. Very cool indeed.IMG_0581
