Annual Harvest Festival

We are gearing up for our annual Harvest Festival and silent auction. The venue is still to be determined and the auction items are beginning to be collected. This is a gathering where bees are the themes, food is abundant, and swarming is allowed! We need your help. Please donate to the auction. Anything you are creative enough to think, of works.

Working with Africanized Bees - Speaker Hilary Kearney

 

Hilary Kearney founded Girl Next Door Honey in 2012 in her home town of San Diego, California after graduating from UC Santa Cruz with a degree in Fine Art. Breaking from tradition, she developed a beekeeping business that does not rely on honey sales or pollination services for economic success. Instead, Girl Next Door Honey focuses on bee-centric programs such as natural beekeeping classes, apiary management, classroom presentations, beehive tours, live bee removal and more!


Hilary’s beekeeping exploits and unique business model have inspired people all around the world. She is the author of the beekeeping blog Beekeeping Like A Girl and maintains a popular Instagram account. When she’s not rescuing bees, teaching about bees, photographing bees or managing one of her fifty colonies… she’s sleeping and dreaming of bees.

Join us for an exciting discussion with Hilary around the topic “Working with Africanized Bees.”
