We are looking for speakers for this year’s event.

Teach and Inspire

Beekeeper’s Stage

Our team is working to create a dynamic schedule of speakers. Our goal is to pack the day full of topics that are important to Arizona Beekeepers, so we are carefully selecting our lineup now.

Education Stage

We also know the the general public desires to know how they can take part in helping honeybees, so we will be choosing topics for the education stage specifically for them.

    Plating suggestion —

    Keep all dessert elements chilled until time to assemble and serve. In glass parfait flute, layer fruit salad then cream then fruit salad then cream to top of flute. Finish with dollop of topping. Garnish with purple/blue edible orchid or candied violet.
    Place filled dessert flute on nightblooming cereus or plumeria/frangipani scented paper doily.
