Get to know Christy Hemenway of Gold Star Honeybees.

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? When and where? 

The name of the workshop is "How and Why To Keep Bees in Top Bar Hives".  It's designed to give basic information and answer questions for people who are considering keeping bees in this green and sustainable way.  The talk is Sunday afternoon at 3pm on the Grit Stage.  See you there!

ChristyHemenwayGoldStarWhat are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees?

The importance of natural beeswax honeycomb - made BY bees, FOR bees - to the bees!  Like we say - "It's all about the Wax!"

What are you most looking forward to at the Fair? 

Two things:  1)  I really want to meet Joel Salatin, because I think it really IS all about the pig-ness of the pig.  and 2) I want to meet all the MEN Fairgoers that come our booth to check out sustainable beekeeping in top bar hives.
