The so-called “Colony Collapse Disorder” now facing beekeepers makes it all the more imperative that local beekeepers, farmers, and gardeners learn healthy ways to assist the honeybee. Ross will share the "how to" of numerous techniques to keep bees alive despite the numerous stresses on their health. Topics covered include: Organic Beekeeping, Managing Farms and Yards to Provide Bee Forage and Habitat, Home Owner Activities to Help Our Pollinators.
