Beekeeping and Symbiosis
As any experienced beekeeper will quickly tell you, the word beekeeper is a misnomer. We don't keep bees in cages or on leashes. We have little control of their welfare; we only influence it in the hope of some reward such as honey and pollination. This symbiotic relationship can be elusive and occasionally challenging.
Our passion at Hive & Garden is to help you navigate through the challenges and decisions of beekeeping, such as type of hive, type of honeybee, and approach to colony management. All these decisions present a trade-off in hive management. Our mission is to help you understand these trade-offs, and pick the type of beekeeping that feels right for you.
