Learning about beekeeping is a rich and varied pursuit; courses, books and experiential learning all help to develop the art of beekeeping.
The internet has an overwhelming number of sites devoted to beekeeping.
A good place to start is the Ontario Beekeepers Association (OBA). The mission of the OBA is to ensure a thriving and sustainable beekeeping industry in Ontario by advocating for beekeepers’ interests, supporting honey bee health research and delivering practical training and information.
