But you'll probably still be there, won't you Mike? Since it's in NY I'm going to make an effort to be there too.I just received notice that EAS has cancelled speakers, Dee Lusby, Erik Osterlund, and myself. They claim not to have any money for speaker support. Afraid of the recession. Hmmm.
apologies if i've missed anyone. i've had some limited correspondence with some of those you name. i won't presume to know what their practices are or are not....some of them are on this list, and an actual correction of an error is always welcome. as i said in my comment, my knowledge of what each individual beekeeper does or does not do is limited.Adam Finklestein is on the list. Bob Brachman, a Russian queen producer is on the list. Tom Rinderer is on the list.
well, i think it's pretty well established that the beekeeping industry as a whole has become overly dependent on chemical treatments.AFAIK, each has some considerable experience with "nonchemical beekeeping" and an open mind.
http://www.easternapiculture.org/programs/2009/ is the home page.How much does it cost to attend the conference etc...?
Well Dean,Why don't you and Ramona attend this year and meet some of the people....
