With the heightened interest in local honey, bees and beekeeping, community gardens, sustainable living and urban farming, beekeeping has experienced a resurgence in popularity. Many people start hives and then wish they had someone to coach them in the process of learning beekeeping. Through our classes beegirl.biz will help you get started keeping bees and work through beekeeping issues.
Beekeeping is as much of an art as it is a science. It is the activity of managing colonies of live insects who are dependent on the weather and the forage available for their survival, who are affected by the use of herbicides and pesticides, who have been hit hard by the influx of parasites and diseases from other countries: and yet continue to produce as no other insect, golden sweet healthy honey, beeswax, pollen and pollination of our fruits and vegetables. beegirl.biz seeks to promote the art of beekeeping through local beekeeping clubs, by mentoring urban beekeepers and by educating about bees and plants for bee forage.
