The Best Bees Company’s Noah Wilson-Rich, and “Bee Girl” Sarah Red-Laird welcome you to the Eastern Apiculture Association’s 2016 Conference! We will be hosting a “Next Gen” breakout session for fellow young beekeepers!
What’s a “Next Generation Beekeeper”? “Next Gen” is defined as, “The step forward that perpetually propels us into our impending destiny.” We are the next generation in our family of beekeepers; we are the drivers of the next stage of development in the products, services, expertise, and knowledge our industry provides. This beekeeper is a commercial or small-scale beekeeper, or words as an educator or researcher. They are passionate about bees, and want to be involved in future beekeeping innovation, research, policy, technology, advocacy, or community leadership.
This breakout session will feature free beer, music, great networking opportunities, and an organized, interactive group session. This session is on July 26th, starting at 7pm, at the Germania Fire Co. (312 S Cologne Ave, Cologne, NJ 08213), and designed to develop a few ideas for addressing the issues new beekeepers face, as we join this industry. You tell us what needs to be done, we’ll listen, and help to develop a positive action plan to propel our industry forward!
