The Road Ahead
In this talk, Gunther will challenge the notion that already now there is cause for celebration, since we have gone far astray from what is healthy and sustainable. Seeds for a better future are present; however, an immense amount of obstacles inherent in "our way of life" need to be overcome before we can celebrate.
Listen first, and then talk with Gunther the about the roadmap he presents in his keynote address for the most important, far-reaching changes needed to achieve a healthy, resilient community.

So You Want to be a Beekeeper: What You Need to Know
Keynote speaker Gunther Hauk will present the most detrimental currently accepted beekeeping practices that undermine the bees' health and weaken their ability to withstand the onslaught of viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. Once you know what NOT to do, you'll find yourself on track for practices that nurture healthy bee colonies.
