We finally have things in place enough to estimate costs, and start taking registrations.
2011 Northeast Treatment Free Beekeeping Conference
"Grow Your Own"
This will be the 3rd annual conference held in Leominster, and is shaping up to be the best yet. The theme is “grow your own”...from “grow your own queens” and “grow your own operation” to "grow your own microbial culture". The core of our conference speaking roster is always beekeepers who are successful at running their own businesses … honey production, queen/nuc production, honey sales, and not for profit bee conservation and educational programs.
“The Main Conference” is comprised of 1.5 hour talks from each of our speakers (see below). We work with all of our speakers to tailor the material they are presenting into a carefully sequenced curriculum (rather than simply a collection of talks). We have had over 100 attendees in each of the last two years, and have moved to a larger venue for 2011.
