Checking out the local scene

I took the opportunity to see a showing of Vanishing of the Bees in Ottawa a couple of weeks ago with hopes that I’d meet some local beekeepers. In addition to meeting Brent Halsall, a commercial beekeeper from the Ontario Beekeepers Association I was lucky enough to be at the same table as Carolyn from Riverglen who was heading to a beehive construction workshop that weekend. Although the workshop was full, she has plans to share the experience so hopefully I’ll be building my own hives soon.
