Have you ever considered beekeeping as the path to teaching leadership skills and tap passions?
Kamal Bell has been doing that on his first generation farm in Cedar Grove, NC. As we sat down to discuss the farm, we found chairs and sat down in a hot tunnel surrounded by seedlings to be planted soon for fall/winter harvests.
We talk through getting the bee hives ready for winter. Kamal admits he wasn't a fan of bees before. Starting hives was actually a suggestion of one of the youth in the farm's agricultural leadership program. The lessons from the hives keep coming and they draw a lot of interest from young and old.
