Speaker Suzy Spencer is a NC Master Beekeeper and keeps bees in her small backyard in downtown Raleigh. She is the past treasurer of Five County Beekeepers (her local chapter) and served the NCSBA as Membership Secretary 2015-2017 She has kept bees for over 30 years but became more involved with chapter work and educational outreach 5 years ago after she retired. She also has a special interest in honey sensory analysis (honey tasting) and is the organizer of the NCSBA “black Jar” honey contest. She went on a beekeeping tour to Slovenia in 2018 where she learned about the different way that its beekeepers raise bees and the many ways that the people show their love and respect for bees. This Slovenia trip will be the topic of her talk.
