Scott Jorgensen is a local beekeeper with a goal to establish a honeybee apiary of 10 colonies to the Hercules Community Garden in November-December of 2013. With your help, we can let it bee! He is raising money through a kickstarter campaign to cover the startup costs of this apiary, a first major step in establishing Hercules Bees.
Bringing a honeybee apiary to this garden is a sizeable project with great possible rewards for everyone involved. Bees in the Hercules Community Garden will ensure better pollination for Hercules gardeners within two miles! That is a great resource for anyone owning fruit trees or garden crops, or who has an interest in watching honeybees.
A Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (The Gambia, '11-'13), Scott learned firsthand of the strengths and flexibility groups of people have when they work together for a common gain based on a few ideas.
