We have had many interesting and knowledgeable guest speakers at our meetings from Provincial Apiarists to research professors and students from the University of Guelph Apiculture Department, manufacturers and suppliers of beekeeping equipment and some of our own experienced members. We also have open meetings where our members can discuss their ideas, practices and questions they might have regarding beekeeping.

Some of the topics discussed at our meetings:

  • Pollination
  • Basic Honeybee Biology
  • Getting Started in Beekeeping
  • Equipment
  • Seasonal Hive Management
  • Extracting and Processing Honey
  • Disease & Pest Control
  • Beekeeping Regulations and Inspections
  • Marketing Honey
  • Socials and Auctions
  • How to Enter and Win a Competition
  • Making Beeswax Candles
  • Queen Rearing

We have meetings once a month for eight months of the year starting in April ending in November, usually the second Monday of the month.  Most of the meetings are held at the Kortright Centre in Vaughan. Check the website for location, date, time and the meetings agenda.
