Arboreal Apiculture Salon #29 (no live event – podcast only)

October 19, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm PDT

Our guest speaker in October will be Maggie Shanahan. We met with her for an interview in early October and will publish the podcast asap.  Maggie (she/her) is a beekeeper, researcher, and parent currently based in Chiapas, Mexico, where she works with her extended family to manage a variety of bee-related farming projects. She holds a Ph.D. in entomology from the University of Minnesota, where she studied the strategies that honey bees and stingless bees use to keep their colonies healthy and the agricultural systems that impact bee health. Maggie’s most recent project involves surfacing conversations both within and beyond the bee research community around the ways in which research narratives normalize and perpetuate harmful agriculture systems. She is interested in helping shift those narratives to create opportunities for transformation. You can read more about her work here.

The Arboreal Apiculture Salon is an opportunity for a global arboreal apiculture community to connect and meet for exchange and symbiotic learning, to share innovative ideas, and to be a resource for each other. Listen to or chat with arboreal apiculture experts and enthusiasts from around the world and develop a deeper connection to Arboreal Apiculture & Apiology.

Co-hosted by Cheyanna Bone (Apis Arborea), Jonathan Powell (Natural Beekeeping Trust), and Michael Joshin Thiele (Apis Arborea).

The Salon is a free event, serving communities around the globe. If you would like more info or have a suggestion for a topic/ speaker, please send an email.
