opics include all aspects of managing bees without the use of any treatments (synthetic, “natural”, or “organic”). There will be programs for both beginning beekeepers (including those that have never been around bees before) and for those with more experience:
* Small Cell Beekeeping
* Foundationless Frames
* Overwintering Nucs
* Queen Rearing
* Commercial Beekeeping
* Top Bar Hives
* Microbial Environment in the Hive
* Beginning Beekeeping
* Working with Landowners
* Beekeeping on a shoestring
* History of Foundation and Cell Size
* Economics of Migratory Beekeeping
* Bee Photography
* Panel Discussions
Healthy, tasty meals will be provided on site as part of the conference cost (no HFCS!).
Treatment free hives will be onsite for hands on fieldwork with our speakers!
Plenty of opportunity for spontaneous interactions with speakers and attendees.
