This intermediate to advanced workshop will provide a comprehensive survey of natural beekeeping appropriate for small-scale commercial apiculturists as well as hobbyists. Ross Conrad will offer practical information on everything from basic hive equipment to working with bees and overwintering hives.
Conrad will present a balanced view of natural and organic beekeeping topics that are not often covered, including presence and mindfulness in the beeyard, swarming as an expression of the bees’ vitality, working with swarms and making nucleus colonies, non-toxic mite and disease control, and an appreciation for the role that pollinators play within the Earth's ecosystem.
The day's schedule will be as follows:
10:45-12:15--Basics of Bee Biology
1:30-3:00--Varroa Mite Control
3:30-5:00--Disease Control and Overwintering
Early bird registration (by Wed., Mar. 5) is $40 for this eight-hour workshop. After Mar. 5, the price will be $45. Please bring a brown bag lunch.
Other people you wish to register and pay for (spouse, partner, friend, etc.), if any.
