Bee Found brings together beekeepers in a whole new way. We encourage, but don't require, treatment-free beekeeping and social enterprise. Your gains are our gains. Your losses are our losses. Together, we will build stronger, healthier and resilient bees that will help boost all bees and pollination in the area.
Bee Found believes that new beekeepers should be taught the pros and cons of natural beekeeping in an effort to keep the strongest, healthiest bees without the use of dangerous chemicals. We acknowledge the therapeutic benefits of beekeeping, and because of that, focus on veterans with PTSD to give them focus and an outlet. Our goal is to raise area bee populations of strong, mite and disease-resistant bees. Our hope is that these backyard hives will facilitate a dialogue among neighbors, friends, family and the community at large about the importance of bees.
