All About Bees

Meet three beekeepers; Curtis Gentry, an educator and a long time bee lover, who switched from engineering to entomology (the study of insects) in college; Cindy Bee, who comes from a long line of beekeepers (hence the last name) and who “rescues” bees from inside the walls of buildings and relocates them to a safe hive; and finally George Andl, a relative newcomer who learned from Curtis and is now in his 3rd year as an amateur beekeeper.

Why would someone want to keep bees? “Some are looking for honey,” Curtis told us, “but most of all they are probably just looking to get involved with some aspect of nature.” George agrees. “It brings me out into the garden where I like to be. I find gardening and beekeeping very therapeutic. I just love it.”
