Event description

Description

Conventional Langstroth frames can be arranged in a long horizontal box, eliminating heavy lifting and simplifying many beekeeping operations. Many hobby and commercial beekeepers in Europe use horizontal hives exclusively. Learn how management affects bees and honey production in vertical and horizontal hives and how you can achieve same results with less effort.

Workshop to be led by Dr. Leo Sharashkin. Dr. Sharashkin is founder of HorizontalHive.com and editor of Keeping Bees With a Smile, a comprehensive resource on keeping bees naturally in horizontal hives. He is contributor to American Bee Journal, The Beekeepers Quarterly (UK), and Acres USA, and speaks internationally on sustainable beekeeping, organic growing, and Earth-friendly living. He holds a PhD in Forestry from the University of Missouri and a Master’s in Natural Resources from Indiana University. Author of world-renowned research in sustainable agriculture, he lives with his wife and four children on a forest homestead in the Ozarks in southern Missouri where they raise bees in a variety of low-maintenance, easy-to-build horizontal hives.
