"Human beings have fabricated the illusion that in the 21st century they have the technological prowess to be independent of nature. Bees underline the reality that we are more, not less, dependent on nature’s services in a world of close to 7 billion people” #russiansage #keeperofbees #apiculture #apismellifera #morethanhoney #peroviskia

SO happy to announce that I've been accepted to the full time beekeeping program at #niagaracollege
Starting in January 2018, the one year program will give me focus and experience I would otherwise take years to gather. With the college being in my back yard and already having a student number from my past...how could I not try? #niagarafarmproject #niagarabeeproject #honeybees #educateme #thankful #beekeeping #keeperofbees #pollinatorfocus

My Grandpa Bill caught his first swarm of bees in the late 1950s. He was driving back to Burnie from Hobart when he noticed the swarm resting on a tree by the side of the road. He caught it in a cardboard box, secured it to the back of his Pontiac and brought it home. That one hive turned into two hives, then 10, and eventually 100 hives, housing a total of five million bees. Five million! Grandpa would place his hives inside the ancient Tarkine Forest when the native leatherwood was in flower. Word of his aromatic leatherwood honey spread far and wide, and he started receiving requests in the mail from 'Mainlanders'. My Grandpa adored his bees. He loved listening to their hum, and watching them go about their business without a fuss. Now - 60 years on, and with his 90th birthday around the corner - he has given away his last swarm. The honey in this jar is from his final harvest. Willow and Archie, his Great Grand-twins, love to spread it on their toast most mornings. Which is pretty awesome really.

The bees completely removed the news paper from between the boxes which I placed there when I combined two colonies, one hopelessly queenless. #keeperofbees #honeybees

I consolidated the hives back down to one due to robbing, a condition that I caused by mistake. Still learning. #keeperofbees #robbers #whatchagonnado
