Seeking funding for Northern Queen project

We are seeking funding for an additional 14 colonies for our 2013 SARE project comparing honey bee package colonies with requeened packages.  SARE has funded 36 colonies for this project (the cap of their Farmer Grant), but we would like to increase the sample size to 50.
This project is a continuation of the work we did in 2009 and 2010.  The final results of that project were extremely promising, raising the survival rate of the packages from 42% to 90% by requeening.  Project description and reports can be found on the SARE website by searching FNE10-694. here

We are requesting donations of in any amount to support this project, or you may sponsor a colony in our project for $500.  All donors will be invited to participate in the project, and hive sponsors will not only be able to participate in the project, but will also be able to keep their colony after the project is complete.  More details about supporting our project can be found here:
