Speaker: Sarah Red Laird, The Bee Girl
Topic: All Things Bees!
This month we are thrilled to present BEE GIRL for a talk and discussion focused on all things bees. Find out the current state of the darlings of our food system, locally and nationally. Sarah Red-Laird, Bee Girl, will highlight her work with bees and beekeepers while guiding us through step-by-step ways we can become bee heroes.
Sarah Red-Laird is the founder and Executive Director of Bee Girl, a local non-profit organization devoted to bee and beekeeping education, mentoring and outreach. Sarah recalls enjoying fresh honeycomb as an active youngster here in Southern Oregon.
While attending the Honors College at University of Montana, she chose honeybees and Colony Collapse Disorder as her research project. She put in time at the UM Honey Bee Lab, produced her report titled, “How to keep 100,000 Girlfriends – the Careful Relationship of a Beekeeper and her Honey Bees,” and graduated with honors as a University Scholar.
Sarah worked at Bee Alert Technology, Inc before returning to Southern Oregon in late 2010. She is excited to combine her love of bees with her education, outreach and non-profit experience to encourage and support the newest generation of bee lovers.
We want to extend our deep gratitude to Linda Donovan of Pallet Wine Co. for helping us to launch Green Drinks in Medford.
We also thank Emile Amarotico of the Medford Food Co-op and Anne Eldridge for their generous sponsorship of our early gatherings.
