Stephanie has been keeping bees for 6 years. She runs The Benevolent Bee (www.thebenevolentbee.com), a local business selling honey, candles, and other handcrafted bee products. Sadie is a 5th year beekeeper. She keeps her bees at the Leland Street Community Garden, at the Boston Nature Center, and at her home in Melrose, MA. She is on the Board of Classroom Hives (www.classroomhives.org), an organization that has been placing observation hives in classrooms in the Boston area since 2001. Guest lecturers will also visit the class on occasion. Both Stephanie and Sadie trained in beekeeping under local organic beekeeper, Jean-Claude Bourrut.
