Assemble & Take Home an Urban Bee hive!
We'll knock together an 8-frame Langstroth starter hive including a brood box and frames, an inner and outer cover, and reversible bottom board. Then we'll build a second, screened, bottom board as part of our pest control strategy. More compact than a conventional hive, this 8-frame is perfect for urban environments where space is at a premium. Because it's lighter, it's a better choice for rooftop apiaries where weight restrictions can be a consideration. And lifting is easier on the back. Please note that in addition to the course fee there is an additional materials cost.
All courses will be run out of the Centre for Urban Ecology at the Humber Arboretum.
