About the beekeeper
As a journalist and novelist, I research and learn new things constantly. I love it. Curious, nosy, never heard of none of my beeswax. So when I profiled a beekeeper years ago, I peppered him with practical questions. One thing led to another, and I tried to get beekeeping passed as a town eco-venture to go with our pollination corridors. When that didn't win funding, I decided to take on hives of my own, and started attended bee school through the county beekeeper's association. A funny thing happens when you're the caretaker of a hundred thousand honeybees. You feel responsible for speaking up for the ecosystem they're a part of. And if you're someone who's curious about learning new things, there's plenty of practical and creative raw material in honey and beeswax.
Thank you for visiting our little colony online, and for showing an interest in the intricacy of the bee society and the precarious balance of their well-being.
