Interesting. Has this been worked into the 2019 version of PEP?

Wow. Pep is not a new thing? It's sure getting a lot of buzz now(pun intended, get it? Buzz).

If input is being asked,  i might question quantifying the amount of honey produced/sold. That could be counter productive to the health of the hive.

Best video i ever watched on this subject is the lady that spoke at wheatons 2017 pdc course. I would include that one in the badges.

Poked around some more & found it here.

Looks like it's still on the agenda but the specifics are not posted yet. This one seems it would be hard to organize. There are just so many variables. Maybe even harder to document.

Yeah, it's looking like beekeeping will get combined with Animal Care. I'm really interested in seeing how that badge pans out, because it covers SO MUCH. Will people need to learn all the different animals, or basic care and then specialize in a type of animal in the higher levels or what?

It's kind of like the Textile Badge---there's just SO MUCH included in there (textiles has upholstery, mattress and tent making, basketry, knitting, crochet, leather-working, felting, weaving, growing and processing and spinning fibre, and sewing and quilting )
