This year we have announced a new program for the public to get involved in regenerating the depleting number of honeybee colonies in Ontario and to get a taste of what beekeeping is all about.
There are two flavours of membership:
- $200 Gold Membership helps us buy a colony of honeybees
- $100 Silver Membership helps buy a 1/2 colony of honeybees
Membership fees are applied towards the purchase of new honeybee colonies in exchange the member receives:
- a Harvest Box consisting of honey and other hive products of equivalent value to the membership
- an introductory session on beekeeping
- and participation in some of the daily beekeeping activities
Each member receives a rich breadth of all natural healthy hive products, while helping to restore this vital ecological resource, and has an opportunity to experience a slice of the life of a beekeeper.
