“Educating the public is important to Gennetta not only to promote her business, but also to emphasize that bee repopulation will be more successful as a combined effort.”

“”The future of bees isn’t one beekeeper with 60,000 hives, the future of bees is 60,000 beekeepers having one hive,” Gennetta said. “I thought if I could spread hives around the community and I could educate people, maybe I could make a difference.””
