Hello! I've been reading these forums for a couple of years now and finally decided to create an account. I'm a beekeeper in central Kentucky with 3 of 3 hives still alive as of today.
I work at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, and have been helping them develop both a production and education apiary, as well as pollinator education programming. The Village is a private non profit, National Historic Landmark with about 3,000 acres and 30 or so historic structures. It's a fabulous place to work and they have been wonderfully supportive of creating new pollinator programs. I feel so lucky to work at a place that lets me do some of the things I'd like to do in my free time anyway!
Anyway, just wanted to say hello and introduce myself I look forward to learning from folks here!
