The Heritage Bee Company Workshops & Events
Many say beekeeping is an art, and a solitary pursuit. While this is indeed true, we also believe it’s important to stay connected, share knowledge and support one another. Plus, perhaps learn a thing or two. Here are some events we are attending, hosting, or may be of interest to you. Come join us and meet other like-minded beeks!
Join a group of natural beekeepers based in Dufferin County. We meet the first Sunday of every month from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Visit www.beenaturacaretakers.com or Facebook for more information. All are welcome–from new beekeepers to hobbyists to veteran beeks. First meeting is complimentary.
Our members are from Collingwood, Creemore, Toronto, Orangeville, Mississauga, Shelbourne, Meaford, New Tecumseh and other surrounding areas.

Location: DUFFERIN COUNTY MUSEUM – The Historic Corbetton Church
We look to the past; to the pioneers, the originals, to understand where Dufferin County began. We study the lives of the first settlers because they are the heroes of our County. They built roads, businesses, and families. They were resilient.
Dufferin County has grown and changed…but one things remains: the pioneering spirit.
The Dufferin County Museum & Archives is pleased to present the new 2017-2018 exhibition, True.Grit. This display of artifacts, archival materials and modern photography compares and contrasts pioneers and present-day people who have made important contributions to our community.
Debbie & Jeff of The Heritage Bee Co. are proud to be the featured beekeepers in this Main Exhibit.
Debbie Gray of The Heritage Bee Co. is speaking about the World of Bees on April 3rd, 2018.
Ever wonder what goes on inside a honey bee hive? UFCW will host an evening of everything you need to know about honeybees. Learn about the structure of the colony; what’s going on with the bees today and what you need to know before going into beekeeping.

This event ‘Learning from the Bees’ will be the first of its kind – bringing together natural beekeepers, scientists, nature conservationists, artists and bee-lovers from all over the world. Together, we will shift our gaze from contemporary apicultural practices towards a Culture of the Bee, exploring together what that may look like, and how best to listen to the messages these pollinators are giving us about ourselves and about our relationship with the land (or with nature). In this way we hope to weave a strong international network of initiatives, which share the common objective of returning health and resilience to the honeybee worldwide.
APIMONDIA is the International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations. Its major objective is to facilitate the exchange of information and discussions by organizing Congresses and Symposia where beekeepers, scientists, honey-traders, agents for development, technicians and legislators meet to listen, discuss and learn from one another. Apimondia meetings are fabulous events that offer great opportunities to learn about all the aspects of the beekeeping world. During these meetings, from morning until late evening, participants explore various exhibits and learn about cutting edge research from all parts of the world.
Bee Natural Caretakers
community bee keepers organization
Bee Natural Caretakers is a community group of passionate stewards and hive hosts who are committed to supporting and participating in natural and sustainable beekeeping. We welcome part-timers, beginners, weekenders, students, hobbyists and/or anyone who wants to learn more about this fascinating insect. What can we do to preserve, protect and promote our bees in this area we call home?
As a group of treatment-free, ‘close-to-organic’ bee caretakers we rely on observation and natural practices to keep our bees thriving rather than using pesticides, chemicals or toxic treatments of any kind.
We will continue to grow as more and more people discover the enjoyment and worth of encouraging our feral (wild) honeybees and our over 400 species of local native bees. Our goal is to do right by the bees so they can return the favour. We typically meet in Mulmur, ON, south of Creemore.
