It started out as a hobby, joining a beekeeping club then becoming the president after a few years. I opened my own beekeeping equipment store and beekeeping training. 500+ students have completed my introduction beekeeping course.
I have known about the decline in world bees and by teaching and passing on my knowledge I hope this will increase the world population of bees. It's not all about the honey. Bees are a major part of our eco-system and without them we will lose a large percent of our food supply.
