Beekeeping Courses

We offer amazingly fun beekeeping course in a learning environment solely focused on making you a better beekeeper. Your success is our passion! Come learn from the best and meet other local beekeepers!

Refresh, Renew and Rethink how you manage your bees!

This one day beekeeping course is for those that are interested in keeping bees, or those that already have bees and need some guidance.  The class is held in the yard and is incredibly hands on.  Please bring your beekeeping gear (suit, tools and smoker) if you have it, otherwise we can provide gear for you.

You will leave with a clear understanding of how the colony works, how to manage a colony on your own and possibly give you a clear vision as to whether this is a hobby you want to start up.  Even if you decide not to take up the amazing craft of beekeeping, you’ll walk away with a knowledge base to honey bees that most don’t understand. The world of honey bees is incredibly fascinating, and we’ll share so much of that information with you.

This class is weather pending, if it rains we will have to reschedule.

Your course fee includes a copy of The Absolute Beginners Guide to Beekeeping.

Class Location: Urban Bee Honey Farm @ 6440 West Saanich Road

Instructors:  Lindsay Dault & Julia Common (see bio’s below)

1 Day Intensive Beginner Beekeeping Course-June 24th


JULIA COMMON, BSc and MSc Agriculture // Chief Beekeeper for Hives for Humanity.

Julia Common is a Master Beekeeper and has been keeping bees since her university days. What started as a summer job became a life long passion which only in the past two years has been fully realized. Hives for Humanity was founded in response to the incredible reception her bees received in the Downtown East Side of Vancouver. Now with over 200 hives and 50 sites throughout Vancouver communities, Julia, as Chief Beekeeper for Hives for Humanity, has a story to share. 
She finds joy in teaching others the art and practice of beekeeping.

Lindsay Dault is a Master Beekeeper, BCHPA instructor, advisor the Senate on Honeybee health, published beekeeper in Backyard Roots, and a teacher to hundreds of students.  She started Urban Bee Supplies over 6 years ago, when she thought she might get bored being a mom.  She has since relocated her family to Victoria to pursue her dream of running a family farm with her husband.  Urban Bee Honey Farm is their collaboration of both partners hobbies, he does the birds, and she does the bees! A match made in heaven so to speak.

Lindsays passion for beekeeping and teaching is clear when she stands in front of her students.  Her classes are filled with laughter which she believes helps her students retain the information better….and allows for a fun weekend!
