Anita Deeley is a biologist who maintains approximately 30 honey bee hives. She began as a backyard beekeeper full of enthusiasm and trepidation with only a single hive on her rooftop. Her passion and quest for beekeeping knowledge led her on an adventure across America that would change her path forever. Anita loves to experiment, try new things, and share those ideas with workshop participants. Wondering what you can do to help save the bees?
