Please let me know if you open any weekends, even as late as in the fall. I'm looking to do honey next year. But I can't do a weekday unfortunately.

Sorry for the late reply. Winter is finally here and I have some time.

Yes, Sandy. I am running a few beekeeping courses this winter to help beet the winter blahs. They will be starting in February and will be running every Saturday from 1:00 pm until about 4:00 pm. I leave the open ended and am available as long as people have questions. The shop will also be open after the courses for those people needing things.

You can read about the course at this link. http://innisfilcreekhoney.com/products/ ... rse-winter

I will also be offering a few Spring Courses on Splitting your Hives and doing Nucs. I have not set dates up for them as of yet.

Any questions please let me know. It is better to either call me or send me an email to my email address. I don't get much time to log in any more.
