Help us raise funds to hold our annual Train the Trainer workshop for 2018. These workshops teach beekeepers how to recognize honey bee disease, and to return to their clubs to teach others. We select the best beekeepers instructors in North America to teach. We also have a series of lecture videos from the workshops on youtube! Funding make these videos available to everyone.
We are an educational not-for-profit 501c3, non-membership organization whose mission is to educate new, beginning, and small scale beekeepers, and others interested in honeybees and beekeeping, in honey bee disease recognition, and to provide services and information for beekeepers and the general public on maintaining healthy honey bee colonies in New York and the surrounding region.
We conduct intensive, skills oriented workshops, including train the trainer programs, provide educational printed material, survey beekeepers for disease incidence and bee survival, maintain an educational website, conducts studies on parasites and viruses, write a quarterly newsletter, and provide information to the general public at fairs and conferences.
