I’ll be travelling to the beautiful Blue Ridge area of the Appalachians in North Carolina for this event. The event is organized by the Center for Honeybee Research. Featured speakers include Paul Stamets (world renowned mycologist), Dr. Steve Sheppard from WSU, Dr. Jay Evans from the USDA Beltsville Bee Lab and myself- Melanie Kirby- survivor stock queen breeder.

I’m very excited to learn from these esteemed scholars and am humbled to participate….the consilience is brewing!
