We will have three meeting rooms and will have two programs going on at the same time
Our guest speakers will be:
Gary Reuter: Apiculture Technician, University of Minnesota
Gary will do a 1-day (Friday) Queen Rearing Workshop that will be limited to the 30 people – there will be a nominal fee or $6 charged for some of the materials. It will be payable on Friday. Saturday you will be able to check your grafts-so maybe an hour on Saturday too. Limited to 30 people
Ginger Reuter: will do a beeswax workshop, a Batik demo & a workshop on Ukrainian Eggs limited to 12 people.
John Miller: Commercial Beekeeper, Gackle SD, Newcastle CA and Blackfoot ID. Miller Honey Company produces millions of pounds of honey each year.
Pat Randol is from Winterset Iowa and operates Randol Honey Farm. She has quite a few hives and does several Farmers Markets in the area. She does a lot of value added products. She will present on Making Goats milk soap with honey and making lotions and lotion bars. They also make creamed and flavored honey, collect pollen and so much more. They also have a website that they sell from.
Cooking Contest-Friday, late afternoon. Appetizers with honey as the main sweetener. Members are asked to bring enough for 75 people. Prizes will be awarded and plates will be provided. Please bring recipes.
Please note that there will be two programs going on at one time a several times there will be three choices. The Queen rearing workshop which is limited to 30 people and the Ukrainian Eggs Workshop is limited to 12 people will need to be preregistered. For those two workshops you must email Joli at email@example.com or call her at 913-593-3562 to reserve your space.
To finish filling out the program I am trying to add some more solid beekeeping talks to Saturday’s schedule and on Friday I’m trying to add a presentation on social media for rural small businesses. Does anyone have a microwave that you could bring to the meeting for one of our guest speakers to us? Any ideas for a fun program on Friday night? Call Joli Winer at 913-593-3562 or email me if you have any ideas.
Mark your calendars for Spring, March 8 & 9 2019 in Lawrence KS. We have Dr. Juliana Rangel from Texas A&M.
