We are very pleased to have two excellent speakers:

Brian HamlinBrian has been a beekeeper for 42 years.   He has installed hives in numerous urban locations, including the Toronto Portlands Energy Centre and the Toronto Islands, as well as on rooftops at University of Toronto and Seneca College campuses.  With the Urban Toronto Beekeepers Association, Brian has co-hosted apiary visits and educational events for the public.  Closer to home, Brian has installed hives at Lang Pioneer Village and Laveanne Lavender Fields.   Brian will speak about his experiences as an urban beekeeper and lead us on a honey tasting tour of six different Toronto environments. 

Mike PerrinMike is a Bee Inspector with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.   He is a 4th generation beekeeper and 4th generation bee inspector.   Mike will provide an overview of the history and importance of the bee inspection program.  He will leave lots of time for Q&A, so come prepared with your questions.
