From the Archives: Beekeeping in the Americas
Over the years, Partners of the Americas' Farmer to Farmer Program has provided training to beekeepers in many countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, including Panama, Bolivia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Antigua and Haiti. Beekeeping has many environmental, nutritional, and health benefits in addition to being a source of income for farmers and their families. Many countries in the region also have a comparative advantage in beekeeping due to climatic factors - Nicaragua can produce honey for 8 months out of the year!
Here are a few photos from the archives, combined with a recent one from our Beekeeping project in Haiti. Enjoy!
