10th Annual Bee Forum: Reading the combs–experiencing the world through the perspective of the bees
Sunday, March 31, 2019 from 10am-4pm Cost $45
Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance hosts an annual Bee Forum to join local beekeepers and beekeeping experts to discuss relevant topics in the world of beekeeping, in addition to building community with Chicagoland beekeepers. GPCA is excited to have Randy Oliver present on the topic of hive inspections. Randy’s presentation “Reading the combs–experiencing the world through the perspective of the bees” will focus on interpreting what bees are telling us as we inspect the hives and help us determine how to transition from having bees to keeping bees to managing bees.
Randy Oliver owns and operates a small commercial beekeeping enterprise in the foothills of Grass Valley in Northern California. He and his two sons manage about 1500 colonies for migratory pollination and produce queens, nucs, and honey. He has over 50 years of practical beekeeping experience, plus holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in Biological Sciences. Randy researches, analyzes, and digests beekeeping information from all over the world in order to not only broaden his own depth of understanding and knowledge, but to develop practical solutions to many of today’s beekeeping problems, which he then shares with other beekeepers through his various articles in bee magazines, his speaking engagements worldwide, and on his website www.ScientificBeekeeping.com
