To educate and grow the community of successful backyard beekeepers. Quite simply, that’s our mission.
Bees are amazing “super-pollinators” and responsible for 25% of the food we eat. They make our world better.
In a period where feral bee colonies are struggling, backyard beekeepers play a crucial role in helping these amazing creatures thrive.
Shannon, our founder, is an expert beekeeper and has established the HoneyBee School and Supply as a way to advocate and celebrate all those who currently support our bees while helping grow the population of backyard beekeepers. Shannon has been a backyard beekeeper for 12 years, in 3 different states and specializes in teaching new backyard beekeepers. Beginning with her then 9-year old son in 2010, Shannon has continually managed her own apiary and has helped countless others start their own. Through the years, her other 2 children (now all adults!) and her husband have pitched in to help in many different ways. Friends and family constantly remark how Shannon’s passion and excitement for her bees shines through whenever she talks about them, and have encouraged her to develop the program offered here at the HoneyBee School and Supply.
