Bees are one of the most fascinating creatures I have ever encountered, starting on how the bee hive hierarchy works to the 91 jobs a bee does in her life span of under 152 days.

An interest in the natural world, particularly the relationships that exist between all living things has drawn Whitney to beekeeping. Working with these amazing creatures has given her a deeper understanding and appreciation for the complexities of nature. Honey bees can be both extremely resilient when faced with challenges in health and resources and also quite vulnerable.
Whitney has a honours degree in Environmental Science as well as a Masters of Education both from Trent university.
2014 Whitney founded the Trent Apiary Club, bringing the first hives to the Trent University Peterborough campus. Then together with Lesley Boileau formed a swarm removal business called the Swarm Sisters.
As a hobby beekeeper Whitney understands the challenges and excitement in taking those first few steps towards having your own apiary. Whitney is committed to working in partnership to share information and mentor new beekeepers.Primarily she believes in a world where we can form communities and co-exist with all things on this land.
