Adventures in Beekeeping
I initially conceived this site with the following purposes in mind:
- A place to aggregate useful information that I’ve found for myself as a novice, small-scale beekeeper.
- A resource for coordination between myself and those who will be assisting me in my beekeeping endeavors.
- A reference point for my neighbors and other folks who may come in contact with my beekeeping activities.
Beyond that I have some hopes that this site can be helpful to other folks interested in bees.
My Goals for Beekeeping
- Master the art and science of keeping bees
- Help pollinate my garden, fruit trees, and other neighborhood flora
- Collect enough honey to share with friends, family, and neighbors
- Vertically integrate my mead making operation ;)
- Not piss off my neighbors
- Help teach others about bees and beekeeping
