Should Oregon Sustainable Beekeepers Go Away?

March 6, 2020

Oregon Sustainable Beekeepers was started 10 years ago when we still had hope for the bees.  After a decade of persistent bee die offs, the casual beekeepers are discouraged and the commercial operators are on the ropes.  We started our small club with the hope that we could do our part to change the way the world viewed pesticides and their impact on pollinator health.  It is disheartening work to see good science see the light of day, but then for public policy to only reflect corporate interests.  Meanwhile, every year we have to pick up the pieces of yet another die off and try to resurrect what is left of our colonies.

Our little group gradually went our separate ways, and new contributions to this site ceased several years ago.  It is time to let the site go as well.  This will be the last year I renew the domain name, unless I hear from a volunteer with the desire to carry on the work.  Let me know!

May bees be with you.
