Why keep bees?
Whether you want honey bees to pollinate your garden, produce honey for your family and friends, connect you to nature, the environment, and the community, or all of the above, Southeast Beescapes provides the services to make it easy to keep bees.
Having honey bees in your garden, backyard, farm, or in any other greenspace could greatly impact the landscape. Increased pollination can improve plant yields, make flowers more vibrant and hardy, and in turn better feed the pollinators whose populations are declining worldwide.
Honey bees are an easy gateway to understanding nature and the delicate balance between humans and the environment in which we live.
There is also a strong community of beekeepers nationwide as well as in your local area. Many cities have their own beekeepers association that can provide support, advice, and education, as well as organize meetings and events.
Honey, pollen, and propolis are all by-products of keeping honey bees. They can help make the whole experience rewarding, exciting, and sweet.
