ماذا ستفعل

Plan to arrive at about 11:30 AM. I'll supply a hearty lunch served on the deck of our cozy cottage, surrounded by forests, near the shores of the lake.

At 1PM, we'll head out to the bee yard (just 1km away), overlooking rolling fields and forests full of wildflowers (and ripe wild raspberries if the timing is right!). We'll take a few moments to learn the basics of beekeeing - I'll have some material to help you understand how it works and we'll do the Question and Answer thing.

We'll put on the full protected bee suit and inspect the hives. We'll open one or more of them up, see how much honey they're gathering, look for the queen (she's not always easy to find!), identify the drones, see the eggs...

By 3PM, we should be wrapping up at the bee yard. All participants will take away a 0.5kg jar of local honey as a souvenir.

Before heading home, you can take the time for a refreshing swim in the lake if you like (bring a swimsuit and a towel).

I can recommend some restaurants for dinner on the way home if you like.

I started beekeeping in 1992. I took a break from 1998 to 2015 when I went overseas (Yucatan, Galapagos, Paris, Nairobi) working on sustainable forestry / nature conservation projects. I took up beekeeping again upon my return to Canada. It's a fascinating hobby and I'm always very happy to share it with interested friends and guests, hoping that one day, they might take it up themselves. The bees are kept near the shore of a beautiful lake in the Gatineau hills - a place I've been coming to all my life and where I have multi-generational family roots. Come for a visit, we'll also have a tasty lunch and if you feel like it, we'll finish the day with a swim in the crystal clear waters of the lake.

أين ستكون

Lunch is out our cozy cottage, nestled in the forest, near the shores of the lake (2 minute walk). We have a large deck and a large screened gazebo - all you need for a tasty meal in the outdoors.

The bee yard is located just 1 km from the cottage, on the edge of rolling abandonded pasture lands full of wildflowers.

After the bee yard visit, we can head back to the cottage, put on swimsuits and jump in the lake before calling it a day.
