    Reminder Big Bee Buzz 2013

    Is anybody headed to the Big Bee Buzz 2013 in Tulsa this year?

    Heap good stuff for treatment-free beekeepers this year. Michael Bush, Sam Comfort, and Ed Levi headlining. I'll be there as well, in an unofficial capacity of course if you'd like to meet and/or talk to me. I went last year and live blogged the whole thing. It was loads of fun, learned a lot, and got to hang out with some quality beekeepers. I hope to do the same thing again this year.

    See you there.

    Big Bee Buzz 2013

    The 2013 NEOBA Big Bee Buzz is coming and online registration is now available! It will be held March 22nd and 23rd, at Eastside Christian Church. NEOBA presents this seminar every year as part of our mission to educate folks in this region about beekeeping. We always have visitors from other states, and we present speakers who are worth traveling to see.

    Nearly all of the presentations, whether or not strictly about chemical-free methods, will focus on practical aspects of beekeeping, such as hive management. Our speakers will focus on beekeeping without the use of chemicals. Even if you are a beekeeper who treats your bees, there will be plenty of information that will apply to you.
    Conference Details

    • When: Starts at 5:30PM on Friday, March 22nd, wrapping up around 9:00PM, then starting up again at 8:45AM on Saturday, March 23rd, finishing up by 4:00PM.
    • Where: Eastside Christian Church (1438 S Indianapolis Ave, Tulsa 74112) in the fellowship hall.
    • Cost: $30 – Pay online through PayPal using the link below: (http://neoba.org/big-bee-buzz-2013/)

    Conference Guest Speakers
