Prince's Beekeeping Project
The Prince’s Beekeeping Project is a free youth club open to all Edmonton and area junior and senior high students (12–18 years old). In 2016 Northlands completed its first successful season of the Prince’s Youth Bee Keeping Club, and the results were beyond our expectations. Local Edmonton area youth members not only learned and became passionate about the importance of bees to our ecosystem, but gained proficiency in beekeeping skills, hive-building, and honey production.
Led by Dustin Bajer, this free, 24-week program will run from late May to early November, and provides its youth members (AGES 12-18) with weekly theory instruction and coinciding hands-on activities in a positive and supportive atmosphere.
The Prince’s Beekeeping Project is a sustainable agriculture initiative offered in partnership with Prince’s Charities Canada and the Edmonton Community Foundation. This project will educate local youth on the ecological importance of bees, and provide practical experience in urban beekeeping.
Details for 2018 Bee Club application will be coming soon!
