Strathcona Beekeepers Association 

 http://strathconabeekeepers.blogspot.com/  

We are a new, smaller group with about 10 active beekeepers.  We keep our bees in a 4 acre community garden which has about 150 gardeners.  Some of our members keep bees in their back yards.  Our hive inspections are open to the community ( we invite them through our blog ), we do bee hive demonstrations at our garden open house.  Our focus is to educate people about bees, both native and honey and their importance in our community.

 

If you know of a beekeeping association that wishes to have their contact information shared on this website free of charge, please e-mail us at info@backyardbees.ca with all of the relevant information.
