When beekeeper Dave Pangrac discovered that the thousands of honeybees from all five of his hives had disappeared in November, he experienced a mystery plaguing beekeepers and affecting $15 billion worth of crops in the nation.
"As a society, we have a history of dismissing popular culture, especially that consumed by young women, as silly and therefore irrelevant," writes Jennifer Hahn at Trans/Missions.
"The association is an excellent resource with there being so much knowledge within the organization," Hahn said. "It's not just about having a neat hobby; it's about conserving the bee population."
"After completing the class, I felt like I was well-equipped for beekeeping," she said. "With the mentorship program, every one was willing to help out and give advice, and they really helped to get me started."
