We are fortunate to have an active beekeeping association our area, the Tri-County Beekeepers Association that has a lot of beekeeping knowledge and expertise. One of the outreach activities the association does is to conduct an annual beekeeping workshop which this year is scheduled for March 4-5. The workshop is held on the OARDC campus in Wooster, utilizing both the Fisher Auditorium and the Shisler Conference Center facilities. There is a 1000 attendee limit, so if you plan to attend register sooner rather than later. Registration deadline is February 13 if meals are desired as part of the registration process.
The theme of this year’s workshop is “Beekeeping in 3D: Detection, Disease, Doctoring”. The workshop begins on Friday evening with a tour of the OSU Pollinatarium and Museum at 5:00 pm and then workshop sessions at 7:00 pm. Saturday March 5 is a full day of speakers and workshop sessions. Attendees will have various breakout topics to choose from.
