Event Description

Happy springtime to all beekeepers & other bee enthusiasts!


It’s been very exciting to see the flood of new members to our Village Vancouver Beekeeping site! It would be great to meet everyone and so I am organizing a beekeepers and other bee enthusiasts get-together on Saturday May 7th at 1pm. Steve and I will host this at our home (near Main and 19th). Please RSVP to me: as soon as possible and I will provide you with the address. During this get-together I would be happy to do a short information session on ‘introduction into beekeeping’, so if you are interested in this please let me know.

Also, as I have mentioned before I encourage you to become part of a neighbourhood group where you can meet in person with other beekeepers regularly (or with people interested in beekeeping). Steve and I are part of a group of about 10 beekeepers that was created last spring. We had a couple of get-togethers last year and it was invaluable (and fun!) to learn from each others’ experiences. So far I have responses from people who would like to start a group in the Commercial Drive area, Dunbar and North Vancouver. I suggest creating groups based on where you live - having people that live near by who can lend a hand (or hive box if your bees swarm!) can be very helpful. I would be more than happy to coordinate groups. If interested you can email me at and tell me which neighbourhood you live in (or feel free to start a discussion on our beekeeping site).


On our site there has been a discussion about creating a Beekeeping Association in Vancouver (there is presently one going strong in Richmond, Brian Campbell is the president). I purpose that the get-together on May 7th could be part of this discussion.


I look forward to seeing you again and meeting new members of our beekeeping site!

If you have bees I hope they are doing well!
