About

Dawn, Hayley, and Nora will bring beekeeping skills and supplies to economically-disadvantaged people in the United States and beyond.  Dawn, an experienced beekeeper, and her team will bring standardized apiary designs that can be built from simple wood and mesh to communities in need of job creation and economic empowerment.  Five beehives, with associated equipment and suits, will yield several jobs and honey supplies to be sold at market, not to mention the environmental benefits of beehives engaged in pollination activities so critical to our food supply.  This venture uses the well-understood science of beekeeping – at a local level – to generate impacts in nutrition, job creation, economic opportunity, agriculture, and the environment.
