Michael Thiele is founder of Gaia Bees, and co-founder of The Melissa Garden (one of the first Honey Bee Sanctuaries in the US, an innovative apiary and global resource center for biodynamic and holistic apiculture).
Michael Thiele grew up on a farm in a tiny village in central Germany. He has been deeply influenced by the German biodynamic beekeeping movement. Michael lived with his wife and children at San Francisco Zen Center, where he was the beekeeper and received lay-ordination.
Michael was also recently featured in the documentary Queen of the Sun.
