The McGill Apicultural Association (MAA) is a student-run and governed association that involves students from several disciplines in the natural sciences. The main focus of our club is the promotion of the art of beekeeping, with the particular interest in self-sustainable, small-scale/urban beekeeping. Throughout the year we organize various educational events, and provide a hands-on experience in beekeeping in our apiary that has been set up on the Mac campus grounds. If you are curious to find out about the social structure of the honeybee colony, beekeeping techniques, to build your own hive, or just want to get some free honey while helping out during our honey extraction days, please do not hesitate to contact, or even better – join us!
Those of you registered in the Farm Management and Technology Program (FMT), and undergraduates of the B.Sc. of Agriculture, Environmental Sciences and Engineering are members of the AESUS.
