Tim

Co-Founder, Assistant Beekeeper, and Woodworker

A very busy bee, Tim is always happy to lend a hand with our programs and projects. His customed designed observation hives keep our bees comfortable while out and about in the community. Tim's expertise in woodworking adds those special touches to our pollinator houses, garden signs, and any other project we send his way. When not in the woodshop, Tim can be found tending the gardens, making sure our hard working bees have a nutritious meal. Whether tending the hives or assisting with a program, Tim is a vital member of our hive.
