Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply: Beekeeping in the Foothills (with Organic Emphasis) with Randy Oliver

Saturday, April 2nd
9:30-11:30 AM $20.00
The author, Randy Oliver provides summaries of current scientific research to help beekeepers strategize for colony health.  He also offers observations and data based upon his own experience and field research while managing a 1,000-colony migratory beekeeping operation. 
Beekeeping is more difficult since the invasion of the varroa mite.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of new beekeepers witness the death of their colonies from this parasite.  Luckily, there are organic methods that allow successful beekeeping.  Randy has run his commercial operation since the year 2000 without the use of synthetic miticides, and will share what he has learned about successful methods for colony management in the Sierra Foothills.
