New Local Beekeepers Facebook Group

A fellow beekeeper Kyle Baker and Marc Gravel created a Facebook Group called The NCR Beekeepers Network following the Summer Field Day event at Paul Lacelle’s Apiary. We thought we’d like to keep the buzz going with the creation of the group for beekeepers in the Ottawa Valley - A place to interact freely with one another about beekeeping in our own geographic location!

The NCR Beekeepers Network has been set up so everyone who has an interest in beekeeping (new and seasoned) can post pictures, videos, ask questions, get advice, etc.
