NY Bee Wellness Workshops
August 10/11, Friday/Friday Evening/Saturday, Ballston Spa (Albany area)
We are asking beekeeping clubs or other groups to sponsor a team to attend the workshop, as an investment to the beekeepers in their community . There will be apiary field work both days with a very low student/instructor ratio.
Cost: 150.00 for the initial student from a group, 50.00 for each additional student from the same group –NOTE: This is a phenomenal deal, thanks to matching funds from the Empire State Honey Producers and funds from USDA-NIFA. Scholarships are available.
Larry Connor, Doug McRory (2012 EAS Morse Award winner), Diana Sammataro
Diseases covered will be American & European Foulbrood, Nosema, Mites, Chalk Brood, Viruses, CCD, and other bee maladies.
