Jen Berry - GA


For the past 19 years Jennifer Berry has been the Apicultural Research Professional and Lab Manager for the University of Georgia Honey Bee Program. Her research objectives have focused on keeping bees alive, the sub-lethal effects of pesticides on beneficial insects and IPM techniques for varroa and small hive beetle control. Jennifer’s extension duties include teaching beekeeping to people from all walks of life, including those in Central and South America, to those imprisoned in Georgia’s maximum security prisons.

She is also passionate about educating the public about the importance of beneficial insects and is somewhat of a regular columnist for Bee Culture magazine. On weekends and nights she operates Honey Pond Farm, a honey bee venture that sells quality nucleus colonies and teaches how to raise superior queens at her farm in Georgia.

Honey Pond Farm  Honey Pond Farm is a small, honey bee operation located outside Athens, Georgia, which specializes in teaching classes, raising queens and 5 frame nucleus colonies (nucs). It has been our goal, from the beginning, to concentrate on quality versus quantity and hence return to a gentler approach to raising bees in a more sustainable way which is safer for the environment, the bees and the beekeeper.

New for 2019,

The job of recognizing and showcasing presenters is a big one for sure.
At EAS this year you have a choice of over 100 talks!

Add to that the honey show, demonstrations, vendors and you can image it is an undertaking to try to show that information. In previous years this has been painstakingly done by hand. Keystroke by keystroke. A labor of love for sure.

This year we switched to a 'dynamic' presentation. It will allow you to view the information in more ways and allow us to adjust in real time as we add new speakers and more excitement.

We revamped the presentation to use the whole page and larger text so it is easier to absorb.

One thing we really think you will appreciate is the ability to select a personal schedule! You can easily add a speakers talk to a list and have it on your smart device or print it and bring it along. Nice!

'But wait, there's more'.. you can now search on things like 'Honey' or 'Dewey' or 'Varroa' and find any talks that have your search terms.

We are also working with those who are coming to inform to let them add links and information to their information so that you (and they) can have more interaction and share information. It may a little slow to start but it will grow and we are excited to see what it becomes!

This year is version 1.0 and we realize that there is always room for improvement. There are some elements of past that haven't been completed yet (like the tv guide style presentation), but those features are on the list so know that we are working on them.

We welcome your feedback and really hope you enjoy what we hope is a more enjoyable way to see the excitement.
