It's good to wear a bee suit and bee veil when you're working in the hives. Here's one reason why. I've sent plenty of bee veils in our program photos, but this is the first "bee hat" I have witnessed. The lucky owner of the bee hat is Oles Bardeau, beekeeper and community leader from Aquin.
Let's get a close-up of that.
Many of the Haitian beekeepers that Farmer to Farmer works with have neither bee veils or bee suits. Perhaps ironically, the volunteer who snapped this shot was traveling on an assignment to provide training in constructing new beehives, as you see in the photo, as well as easy-to-make bee veils. Stay tuned for more on her trip.
