Need a Speaker?

The Back Yard Beekeepers Association can provide your club, school, nature center, or organization with an entertaining and informative speaker for your next event or gathering. We have a number of knowledgeable beekeepers who can share their expertise about bees and bee-related products.

Our informative experts would be pleased to lead a workshop or speak on such topics as:

An Introduction to Beekeeping

The History of Beekeeping

Your First Year as a Beekeeper

Beekeeping and Gardening

Bee Venom Therapy

Bees and Nutrition

Beeswax Candles and Crafts

Brewing Mead at Home

Cosmetics from the Bee Hive

Harvesting the Honey Harvest

Threats Challenging the Honeybee

How to Launch a Successful Bee Club

And many more topics related to honeybees and beekeeping.

Speaker Fees:
The speakerís fee is negotiable - our club's mission is to spread the word about beekeeping.  If your organization can make a contribution to our club, a donation of up to $200 for a 60-90 minute presentation would be gratefully accepted and would further our club's goals.   Travel and out-of-pocket expenses are additional.  For more information, please call Howland Blackiston at (203)-226-6303 or e-mail outreach@backyardbeekeepers.com .
