Marla Spivak- 2010 MacArthur Fellow


When Mary and I were in the throes of converting our beekeeping operation to a no chemical operation  we heard Marla Spivak  speak at the 2003 New Jersey Beekeepers Association late winter meeting.  Her presentation made such an impression on us and gave us extra encouragement on moving to a natural beekeeping operation. We have followed Marla’s career  since that meeting and in 2010 she received  a MacArthur “Genius” Grant. Here is a link to a recent article about Marla on the Xerces Society web site, a link to a recent article on the Wired Magazine web site and a link to a  University of Minnesota News Release.
