2018 Apiary

2018 Apiary

The EAS 2018 apiary at Hampton Convention Center offers a great hands on learning environment. 

Located at the far end of the center, it is easily accessible and a nice flat walk to get there. 
A special feature this year are a variety of colony configurations including Top Bar Hives, Warre Hives and “Comfort Hives”.  Wyatt Mangum, Tucka Saville, Sam Comfort, and Albert Chuback will offer hands on workshops on alternative colony designs during the week. 

Our Bee Wranglers, Don Hopkins, NC Apiary Supervisor and Jennifer Keller, bee tech of NC State University will be assisted by Lewis Cable and you are likely to find other current and former apiary inspectors from VA and even other states hanging around! 


The apiary is a great place to hang out and watch some incredibly talented bee keepers who will gladly talk to you and answer your questions.  There are workshops scheduled in the apiary Monday – Tuesday (all day) and Thursday-Friday (afternoons).
