beekeeping at Homeadow Song Farm + interview with C.V. Mansoor

Exploration, Homeadow Song Farm

This past weekend I did something I never thought I’d do… beekeeping.  I love bees, what they do for us and the environment is invaluable.  (If you haven’t seen my post about the bee-based crafts I made on the farm earlier in the year, you should check it out.)  But honestly, I’ve always been a little afraid to work directly with honey bees.  Something about being surrounded by thousands of tiny flying insects that may or may not want to sting you always gave me the heebie-jeebies.  But this weekend I was able to overcome my fear and help transport and install two packets of bees at the Homeadow Song Farm apiary.
