Take a look at both the Short Course (level one and level two), and then the Conference speakers and topics. We have an eclectic collection of speakers addressing a variety of topics, and all are focused on the theme of this year’s overall goal of providing practical, useful, safe and sane information for beekeepers everywhere who want to know more about Practical Beekeeping.

We all have our own ways of doing things so that we get it all done when we are supposed to, (or close anyway), but the obstacles we face, no matter where we are or how we keep bees are fundamentally the same.

Listen to Bill Turnbull, BBC Talk Show Star, talk about his new book, “Confessions Of A Bad Beekeeper”, then come to EAS and meet Bill, and listen to him talk more about Confessions because he is the featured Banquet Speaker on Friday night.· Follow this link to NPR Morining Edtion interview.
