To educate, raise awareness and demystify the honey bee for children while helping them form a connection to nature.

I am a backyard Beekeeper with 14 hives and growing, I have saved hives from being destroyed in peoples yards and houses and have given them a place to call home in my backyard and friends yards. I have talked to children to help them understand why we need bees and have mentored people in how to keep bees in their backyard. I am not an expert but have had great success in my journey into keeping bees, and think I can help more by starting this.
People don't realize that honey bees are losing places to call home because people, cities and states don't want bees near people because they might get stung so they kill them. If you eliminate bees from every yard, every park, near shopping centers, close to sidewalks, next to roads and everywhere in between you now have a problem. Bees account for 30 percent of the food we eat, the last I knew we need food to survive.
