ABOUT THE AUTHOR

This blog is dedicated to fun, accessible learning for new and experienced beekeepers! Unlike most beekeeping blogs, this is not about recording a new beekeeping adventure’s mistakes and successes.   Hilary has been doing a high volume of beekeeping since 2010. She manages around 80 colonies. Her business, Girl Next Door Honey, became a full time gig in April of 2014. She teaches monthly beekeeping classes in her home town of San Diego, California as well as online classes for non-locals. She also offers Beehive Tours for for non-beekeepers, children’s presentations, live bee removal, mentoring and more! She launched this blog in October 2015 as a resource for her students and followers and as a vehicle for discussing beekeeping topics more in depth.
