This next Spring semester at Merritt College in Oakland I am taking a new "beneficial beasts in the garden" class. We are looking for an experienced beekeeper employing natural beekeeping methods to round out our list of field trip experts. If anyone thinks they would be a good fit or knows someone who would be, please message me for more information.
For ease of logistics, presenters should be located within the San Francisco bay area and preferably in the east bay (Berkeley, Oakland, Walnut Creek, etc.) and within 30-40 minutes driving time from Merritt College.
I live in the east bay, and have taken that class as well as others, multiple times. Great stuff. of course, I took the class back when Ken Litchfield was giving it. So I am curious about the new teacher and new syllabus.
I also know lots of beekeepers, so I may be able to help put you into contact. The question is what do you mean by natural beekeeper, since definitions vary widely.
