Swarm Of Beekeepers Gathers In Ashland


It is more than a pun to say that Ashland will be buzzing this weekend (May 18-19).  Because the Oregon Honey (and Mead) Festival returns, along with another bee-based event, the Feminine Legacy Beekeeping Conference. 

Amanda Shaw will be in town; Mandy runs the swarm-catching business Waggle Works and is the president of Portland Urban Beekeepers.  Her PUB duties include hosting the podcast "Beekeeper Confidential."  She checks in on bee matters urban and rural before speaking at the weekend events.
