Display tables will have representatives and information from the NRV Beekeeper's Association, the NRV Native Plant Society, Birdsong Farm, Spikenard Farm Honeybee Sanctuary, NRV Master Naturalists, NRV Master Gardeners, and the USDA Forest Service.
The featured speaker (7-8 pm) will be Gunter Hauk, who has been a teacher, lecturer, biodynamic gardener and beekeeper for more than thirty-five years. He co-founded the Pfeiffer Center in Chestnut Ridge, NY in 1996, and Spikenard Farm, Inc., a non-profit honeybee sanctuary, in 2006. Over these decades, he has given many workshops on the successful use of biodynamic principles in gardening and naturally harmonious beekeeping methods throughout the United States and Canada. In his book, “Toward Saving the Honeybee” (2002), he calls for a radical change from current approaches to beekeeping. The Spikenard Honeybee Sanctuary is now located in Floyd, VA.
