Earlier in February he gave a talk at the Grafton Nature Museum about honeybee ecology and natural history. Ross Conrad leads organic beekeeping workshops across North America regularly. The March 15th workshop in Chester VT will be all day and focus specifically on the honey bee and how to use organic beekeeping principles as a beekeeper in Vermont.

Registration for the event is $45, and it will be held from 9am to 5pm at the NewsBank Conference Center in Chester, VT. Bring a brown bag lunch for the half hour lunch break at noon.
