Meet the Beekeeper
It started with a curiosity for beekeeping, and then the discovery of how bees and other pollinators are at the heart of biodiversity, ecosystem health, and our own food production. Since first stepping foot in an apiary, Vanessa has been astonished by the intricacies and behaviours of honey bee colonies, as well as, their ability to create an incredibly zen working environment that leaves you feeling like you’re the happiest person in the world.
After mentoring from other beekeepers, courses, and countless books, blogs, and video archives, Vanessa found opportunity and a true sense of community in Norfolk County where she first arrived to study at college. Seeking a job that ignites daily excitement and entrepreneurial creativity, Vanessa’s Bees was born.
