HoneyLove Beekeeper of the Month: CEEBS
Bees Rescued from: Water meter in Lakewood, adopted swarms, and a hive that moved into her yard.
“Somehow, I was always meant to be a beekeeper. It wasn’t a matter of if, just a matter of when. My first tattoo 20 years ago was of a honeybee. As soon as I had chickens running around my backyard my next thought was ‘Now where will I put some hives?’
I very much believe in the notion that you don’t find the bees; the bees find you.
I’m a lifelong learner and being a beekeeper means that there is always, always something new to learn. Bees are continually fascinating and exemplary. I love the self-reliance and ingenuity and study that being a beekeeper and bee rescuer requires. I didn’t suspect that being a beekeeper would be as special as it is, but it is truly a transformative activity and a global statement.”
“The only time I ever believed I knew all there was to know about beekeeping was the first year. Every year since, I’ve known less and less.” -Sue Hubbell, A Book of Bees
