So who’s this ‘Beekeeper’ guy and why is he blogging?Mostly, the blog is to share information…
…with people interested in the environment.
…with people interested in Portlandia and the Great NorthWest.
…with people interested in More Bees bath & body products.
In this blog; I’ll be keeping you updated on local events, fun things to do, and hidden treasures, information about bees, honey, and things we can all do to help the bees, and interesting tidbits about the environment and our health. I’ll be posting at least once a week, and more often as time allows. My main reason for blogging is that I’m really looking forward to getting to know you along the way.
Who is the Beekeeper? Well, that’s me; Ronald Lilienthal, I started keeping bees because I was alarmed when I heard about colony collapse disorder, where whole hives of bees were mysteriously disappearing. I was alarmed because so much of our food comes directly and indirectly through the actions of the bee. I bought my first hive and built them a home to offer what I could toward their recovery, and my goal has and always will be always be to keep wild honeybee populations viable.
Here we are several years later; the hives have multiplied a bit as the colonies have grown and as wild hives in distress (In people’s houses, mailboxes, and other places they shouldn’t be), and swarming bees looking for a new home have been given shelter. Stay tuned for more stories on rescuing swarms and the More Bees beginnings. We are a business that has grown tremendously as we’ve learned to create and share our line of bath and body products based on beeswax and honey; including handmade artisan soaps, lotions, scrubs, and balms.
Well, that about covers it for now.
I look forward to your comments on posts as they’re written and being part of ongoing conversations. I only ask that comments stay with the given topic to avoid clutter as I’d hate for your time to be taken up weeding through side conversations while you read up on your favorite subjects.
