The Life and Care of Bees

Ever wonder about how a bee is born, how long it lives, and how much honey it produces? Why a bee hive is called a super organism, and why the queen bee is key? We will provide a live bee display and a working bee hive to show you what bees do, why they do it, and what they need to live.

I am a carpenter and a beekeeper. Carpentry requires the unique combination of working with my hands and building structures that involve complex math. I guess that's why I like bees so much - they use complex systems and patterns to live and create their living space, and they do it with such simplicity and elegance. I like to share my knowledge with others, and highlight the unique perspective that comes with managing a self-sustaining entity of a bee hive.
