We literally break ground this coming weekend to start setting hive stands at the new teaching apiary at Scatter Joy Acres up in Florence.
We are starting off with 2 new interns, 1 full apprentice and 2 volunteer assistants.
We are still encouraging people to donate materials and resources directly to Scatter Joy Acres and if you would like to support the Bee Smart beekeeping project effort to manage the apiary, train new Apiarists, and provide positive interaction opportunities for visitors, please consider supporting us over at my Patreon page for the Bee Smart beekeeping project. Our Patreon supporters will have exclusive access to video updates on the progress of the apiary throughout the year.
Part of the work I do is live bee removals around the Omaha metro area. As I rescue these bees before they might be killed, I will start them in a process to hopefully end up at the Bee Joyful Teaching Apiary. Again these live removal efforts are greatly helped by our Patreon supporters whose patronage helps to reduce costs of work for low income people. Costs can get very high trying to open up and repair an opening where a bee nest is removed.
My goal is to help people bee better beekeepers and keep bee alive and thriving. My apprentices want to to be that kind of beekeeper as well. With projects like this that allow us to offer fun, informative and creative content to share with the world, everyone comes out a winner. Your patronage at the Patreon page help create winners.
