Re: Education sources
Although I think there are some excellent beekeepers and great minds in academia, if your stated goal (practical education) is really what you are looking for, you should really find a commercial beekeeper to work with. They come in all flavors, so find an operation that is close to what you want to do, and do whatever you have to to get involved.
