Would you Like To Bee A Hero?

The Bee Smart beekeeping project was started with the lofty goal of being a mixed media content creator that specializes in presenting useful, interesting and entertaining content about all things bees, beekeepers and beekeeping.

We need help to make that happen.  We need YOUR help.  How can you help?  I’m glad you asked.  Here are some ways you can help us, help you:

  • Become a Patron of the Bee Smart beekeeping project by clicking our handy button on the website and included at the bottom of most posts and pages here.  If you like our work and want to see us continue to bring our best, we can sure use you as a Patron.
  • Become a Sponsor with one-time Sponsorships of specific objectives.  When we do our “Big” videos, record podcasts and hold special live events there are some specific extra costs that we need to cover to handle things like obtaining specific, appropriate equipment, travel expenses, and sometimes to hire a specialist or pay one of our talented team for all the time, effort and creativity they are expending on this very worthwhile pursuit.  All Sponsors are proudly listed in credits and on the website here to let the word know we didn’t did this alone, we needed YOU and YOU came through for us in a BIG way.  Look for the Sponsorship “Sub-Page” under the “Meet the Team” listing on the website menu for more information.
  • SHARE, share,  then share some more.. Please share the posts and links we send out on Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter and LinkedIn.  The more people who beecome aware of Bee Smart and the great content we offer, the more people we can bee useful to and maybe even find more Patrons and Sponsors.

The Bee Smart Project Video Show

Not only do we have the website and the podcasts getting geared up for our community.  We have a monthly, to start out with anyway, video show that will include great action from our content creator team.

The Bee Smart show will kind of, sort of, bee themed after the “Ask This Old House” show that airs on PBS.  At the same time, it will definitely bee its own thing.

We have brought together a team of beekeepers ranging from brand new hobbyists to experienced professionals and experiences in-beetween.   Each of us bringing a special segment or more tot he show that will focus on something that relates to bees, beekeepers and beekeeping.

I can say that personally, I will be bringing the Bee Smart to visit different people, places and groups having to do with beekeeping.  I will bee visiting various beekeeping clubs and associations to show you what different groups are up to and some of the great people who are members of these groups.

I will also take us “backstage” to different places, businesses and operations having to do with all different aspects of bees, beekeepers and beekeeping.  From the warehouses and stores of beekeeping equipment businesses to university functioning educational apiaries and then off to visit the people who use the products of the hive like beeswax soap and candle makers, people who make honey based products and do things with pollen and propolis.

Other members of the Bee Smart beekeeper team will show you How-To tips and take you along as they explain the activities they are involved in beekeeping.  From building equipment to doing live removals or pollinating fields and anything else we can find a way to bring to you.

We will be doing reviews of technology, products and equipment used in beekeeping.  (we encourage people who would like to see our team members try their products out on the show to send them to us for reviewing.  All items sent in for review will be passed along to contest winners and for special patrons rewards (unless otherwise specified by the sender, but we cannot guarantee return of review items sent in.)

There are so many cool things we want to show to you that it just can’t all bee contained in a few episodes.  We are in this for the long haul and we need your help to make it happen.  We want you as a Patron, to help us provide the best quality and content we are able to.  When you sign up as a Patron of the Bee Smart project, you are helping us have the right equipment, get to the places we need to bee and bee at our best to give you our best each and every episode.
