In partnership with expert beekeeper Amber Yano of MOB Honey, our goal is to introduce the benefits bees bring to all of us and the tour de force beehives are as living systems.
Amber’s MOB Honey bees forage western Alberta plains, prairies, and rolling grassland east of the Rocky Mountains and the diverse cropland around the Calgary area.
Amber partners with businesses and organizations who share the same joy to ethically produce local raw, unpasteurized, complex, fluffy honey. The final blend is a tasty mix of clover, alfalfa, canola, aster and dandelion.
Don a protective suit and get up close to a working beehive guided by Amber’s ten years of experience inside honeybee colonies and five years of experience giving beehive tours. She will show and explain you their fascinating characteristics:
The waggle dance, pheromone communication, festooning, buzzing vibrations, altruism, wax construction, honey and pollen synthesis, hygienic behaviour, navigation patterns and signals.
Here’s a checklist of items not to forget when you come.
- Long Pants
- Gardening Gloves (not mandatory)
