Speaker: Ed Szymanski, along with his wife Marian, are homesteaders who take care of bees, chickens, and a lot of fruits, vegetables, and flowers on an acre-plus lot with no lawn in Franklin, Massachusetts. Ed and Marian speak to bee clubs and garden clubs about planting for honey bees and pollinators. Ed also runs an intermediate-level bee school program that last year drew 300 students.
Ed has been President of Norfolk County Beekeepers Association and is involved with both Massachusetts and Rhode Island state associations. He has made a hobby and a small business of photographing bees and pollinators at work. Ed's article "Top 10 Pollinator Plants for the Northeast" was be published in the Autumn issue of 2 Million Blossoms, a quarterly national magazine devoted to pollinators.
