Our presenter will be Keith Fielder, speaking on pollinators.
Keith became fascinated by honey bees around age 6 when his
grandfather introduced him to beekeeping. He has been keeping bees
for most of his adult life and maintains a sideline beekeeping operation
producing honey and honey bees. He served the Georgia Beekeepers
Association as president and worked extensively developing the GA
Beekeepers Association honey show.
He was voted GBA Beekeeper of the Year in 2009. Keith is the County
Extension Coordinator/Ag and Natural Resources Agent for Putnam and
Hancock Counties. He also serves as a regional apiculture specialist for
Cooperative Extension as well. He has spoken on bee and pollinator related issues from local to international levels in England and Ireland.
Keith has a fond interest in developing and maintaining pollinator habitat and educating the general public to be pollinator friendly.
