Learn Beekeeping using the Flow Hive at The Field House at Oak Park, Vancouver
The chART Collective are the artists in residence at the Field House at Oak Park. chART aims to support public art and community engagement through creativity and innovation. Their project focuses on the sustainable cultural, environmental, social, and economic impact of public art within a community.
This specially designed Bee School Certificate course offers 16 hours of instruction in six sessions at the Oak Park Field House. There are two hives at the Field House, a Flow Hive and a standard Langstroth hive. Having access to both will help participants discover the similarities and differences between them and to gain a deeper appreciation for their new Flow Hives. The aim of the program is to help people who purchased a Flow Hive get started out right, to succeed in keeping bees sustainably and to make the best use of this innovative hive design.
If you are curious about the natural world and want to take a guided journey into the amazing life of honeybees or long for a deeper connection to ecology to understand the complexities of pollination and pollinators then this course is for you. You don’t need to be a beekeeper to learn about honeybees or to appreciate their amazing abilities or to get a tremendous amount of knowledge from taking this program. Whether you know not a thing about bees but want to take up the craft or are already an experienced beekeeper the Bee School Certificate program emphasizes good apicultural practices to get you started right or to renew your commitment to beekeeping excellence.
