I am a beginner urban beekeeper in a suburb of Detroit. I fell into beekeeping shortly after hearing about Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). The more I looked into the benefits of beekeeping, the more passionate I became about helping the bees’ cause. This is the start of my journey in beekeeping. My goal is to keep a hive for as long as the bees are willing to let me, have a nice healthy garden as a result, and to spread awareness to others – hopefully encouraging more people to keep bees because if I can do it anyone can do it!
