What is our partnership going to offer you and other Calgarians?

From May-August, A.B.C offers a Monthly Field Day which are currently free or pay what you can potluck honey bee hive inspections available for the public. On the selected Sunday (schedule below) we offer opportunities for those interested in beekeeping to explore the experience of beekeeping and also for those new to keeping their own bees, opportunities to ask questions and receive support. We offer free and open opportunities for attendees of the event to get their fingers sticky and have some fun. This year we aim to have over 400 new beekeepers experience honey bees with A.B.C. The 2014 schedule for Field Days are May 3, June 8, July 13, and August 24th: Register here!

This 2014, we are offering 7 private Home2Hive Tours which offer access to Fallentimber Meadery Honey Wine tastings, a picnic dinner, and up to 5 honeybee hive inspections.

Because of this partnership, SwizzleStick SalonSpa has funded the purchase of protective equipment for up to  20 beekeepers in addition to our 10 suits! So now everyone can come and be comfortable while learning about honeybees!
