Bee-ing a Leader in the Community
Educating the Beekeepers of Tomorrow
Bees shouldn't be banned! We're working to make our local community a bee-friendly place. In October 2020, Tom Knapp spoke to the Harrisonburg Redevelopment and Housing Authority about changing city laws that limit beekeepers.
Knapp's Bees is a proud supporter of iDE, an international nonprofit that powers entrepreneurs to end poverty. Among the many cool things they do, they work with smallholder farmers to improve livelihoods. Beekeeping has been a valuable, low-maintenance source of income for iDE's farmers in Ethiopia!
