Keeping Bees Naturally using Permaculture Philosophy

Don's FaceCNG LabelHoneybee Keep manages Colorado's FIRST Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) Apiaries and has been featured at CNG.

Honeybee Keep is partnering with Slow Money to promote the idea that small and local business is best for our community. The  Honeybee Keep jar label uses the  brand name Slow Honey with a hat tip to Slow Money. One percent of all honey revenue will be donated to Slow Money 1% For The Planet project.

Thinking of becoming a beekeeper?  "... until you are standing alone in your bee suit in your backyard and open a hive to a swarm of mad bees, or start breaking comb and killing bees, or inspecting your hive and your smoker goes out….nothing you read about or was told in a classroom will help you. You need a mentor and you need experience."  Read the rest in Mentee Testimonial.

Don Studinski, dba Honeybee Keep, is a principal permaculture enthusiast at Living Systems Institute (LSI) where he applies permaculture philosophy to beekeeping.  Apiaries under Don's management are all over the Denver metro area from Aurora to Golden and from Boulder to Erie.  Don's beekeeping articles have been published in Bee Culture magazine and on-line at Honeybee Haven, Peak Prosperity and Selene River Press.  As a beekeeping mentor, Don provides advice and counsel for students throughout the United States.  Colorado Bees for Colorado Beekeepers is his project providing nucleus colonies for sale.  Learn more about beekeeping, read free articles and see all the services provided by Honeybee Keep right here at HoneybeeKeep.com.
