The Saskatchewan Beekeepers' Association is hosting its 2016 Field Day at Hamilton Apiaries, just north of Regina, on June 18, 2016. To support the SBA event and in lieu of hosting our own field day, the Regina & District Bee Club will be encouraging members to attend the SBA field day for a day of education and fellowship.
Join beekeepers from across the province for a day of fun and learning with bees, capped off with a scrumptious pig roast.
The day's schedule can be accessed here. Directions to Hamilton Apiaries can be accessed here.

Modern beekeeping requires beekeepers to keep track of a lot of information to meet current regulations for bee biosecurity and food safety. One of the challenges they face is sorting through extensive documents that they are sometimes overwhelming and confusing. The Canadian Beekeepers’ Practical Handbook to Bee Biosecurity and Food Safetyis a new tool to help beekeepers keep track of the information needed to meet current regulations.
