Honey the Old-fashioned Way

Natural Beekeeping Workshops

Become a natural beekeeper and begin the process of certification by participating in a workshop offered by Certified Naturally Grown! Set your honey apart without using the word organic on your honey labels! Join nearly 700 farmers from 48 states that use the Certified Naturally Grown label for their produce or livestock! Get advice on natural beekeeping methods. Exchange ideas and discover ways to transition your operation to a natural, chemical free operation without losing all your hives!

Register and attend a Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) workshop in your region in North
Carolina to learn about the Basic Honey Bee Management and Certification Standards.
The first workshop will be offered in January or February 2010 in each of the NCSBA regions (mountains, piedmont, and coast).

Registration is $10. Enrollment will be limited to 100 beekeepers per region who are certified beekeepers or have equivalent beekeeping experience. The second (also single day) workshop will be made available to those beekeepers that attend the first workshop at no additional cost to them. The second workshop is planned for the summer, once honey has been harvested but before pests become an overwhelming problem.

Each workshop will consist of 3 hours of lecture and 2 hours of demonstrations and
small group discussions. Each will be held on a Saturday in your region. You need to
attend both workshops (the one in January/February and the one in the summer) in
order to understand the program fully.
