Preparing for 2019 IMYB
Banská Bystrica in Slovakia is getting ready for an invasion of young beekeepers at the beginning of July. Vita Bee Health is proud to be a sponsor the tenth annual International Meeting of Young Beekeepers (IMYB).
From 3-7 July, about 100 teenagers, aged 12-17, will come from all over Europe and beyond to form multi-national teams to tackle practical and written beekeeping tasks — everything from inspecting for brood diseases to extracting honey and from honey tasting to pollen identification.
As IMYB founder, Jiri Piza says, even if these youngsters don’t keep bees all their lives, beekeeping will have given them a perspective which will almost certainly influence their life choices and decisions in their careers.
