“Lots of info packed into these short courses. Great for the beginner and as a refresher for the novice.”


“The mini course was a nice bite sized piece of information, that was quick to view, easy to understand and included a supplemental worksheet that can be used to capture learnings. It is a great resource for individuals new to beekeeping or interested in learning about bees before making the investment in equipment and the bees themselves.”


“Simple, clear language that was easy to access for a beginner. I was able to put my learning into practice right away. I felt confident that the knowledge I was receiving was suited to Beekeeping in Alberta. I can't think of anything I would like to change at the moment.”
