Beekeepers: Volunteer with Farmer to Farmer!

Are you a beekeeper? Would you like to share your technical skills with beekeepers who are eager to improve their apiaries in Haiti? Partners' Beekeeping Project in Haiti has several open volunteer opportunities!

Areas include Beehive Management, Beehive Inspection, Hive Division, Comb Removal, Honey Production, Honey Processing, Beeswax Specialist (including making crafts, candles, etc.), Queen Production, Nucleus Production, and Propolis Harvesting. Ideal volunteers will know bee biology and behavior, have solid experience with hive management and the area under consideration, and have strong skills in problem solving and communication.

The Farmer to Farmer Program in Haiti works with beekeepers with a wide range of skill levels. Volunteers also collaborate with local agribusinesses and university students. For more information click on the "beekeeping" label in the right column. For more details please contact Meghan Olivier at molivier@partners.net.
 Haiti is waiting to welcome you!
