Hello everyone, My name is Shawn out here in the eastern end of Ventura County, California. Just over the hill from the San Fernando Valley. I just found out about this site. A friend and I are doing our best to bring public awareness and involvement regarding the Honey Bee issues via my website. We're bringing in hives from Oregon to my properties now and we expect to have 400 hives in place soon. We're attempting to set up a Honey Bee sanctuary, Honey Bee gardens and anything else we can do to increase the Honey Bee populations. We are also trying to help out other Beekeepers. The website is at RanchoSimi.com This site appears to contain a wealth of knowledge and resources that should be very beneficial to us.
