    Default Hello from Harrodsburg, KY!

    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!

    Thank you all for the warm welcome! It certainly is a privilege to work here. The management has been incredibly supportive of the bee and other pollinator programs I've proposed. I am trying to create a set of education programs and business model that will truly support honeybees, native pollinators, and beekeeping as a form of sustainable agriculture. I think this forum will be a great way to get ideas and find out what has been successful for other beekeepers!
