Upcoming A.B.C Classes...

"My favorite part of the course was when you reach that a-ha moment of empowerment...that it is possible to keep your own bees and that there is community support to do so."
- Johanna Stark, Level One Certificate Graduate, Calgary
 
"Fantastic course: I enjoyed it immensely. You’re a charismatic, passionate and charming lecturer! Thank you!"
- Bruce Watson, Level One Certificate Graduate, Calgary

Home2Hive Bicycle Tour- June 9, 2015 More Info | Add to Cart
  • About: A.B.C is proud to launch our second year of offering the Home2Hive Bicycle Tours of A.B.C's honeybee colonies. This year, we have set up all of our beehives on bicycle routes!

You will be able to meet with us after work and bicycle to 2 different hive locations accessible from the beltline Calgary. The trip is leisurely and great for families, new cyclists, and children.
