The Albion Hills Community Farm operates a small apiary used for pollination, honey production and education. In 2019, the farm began a Hive Share program for people interested in learning about the care and maintenance of honey bees.
Following an indoor presentation on bee behavior, hive equipment, and the benefits and responsibilities involved in beekeeping, participants visited the hives in a small groups to see the bees in action, handle frames of bees, and learn about how the hive functions.

We are also interested in hearing about your interests and suggestions!
This area is inspired by traditional Indigenous Medicine Wheel gardens. The four quadrants represent the four directions and four seasons. We created this garden to provide an opportunity to learn, teach and honour traditional Indigenous practices, perspectives and being.
