Spikenard Farm Honeybee Sanctuary

Our mission is to promote sustainable and biodynamic beekeeping through education, research and a honeybee sanctuary, where people can experience a beautiful landscape in which honeybees and other pollinators can live, heal and thrive. For us the honeybees are much more than pollinators or honey producers. They are part of the complex living organism of the earth and integral to our development as human beings. Our vision is to inspire in young and old not only interest, joy and love, but also a new understanding and awareness for the importance of this magnificent, love-imbued, but ver...
Saving the honeybee one beekeeper at a time!
 
Spikenard Honeybee Sanctuary is raising funds for scholarships, children's programs, and new workshops so that more and more individuals can learn methods of sustainable beekeeping that contribute towards saving the honeybee.

Hillside Restoration & Pollinator Habitat Creation
 
Everyone is impacted by the disappearance of the honeybees, our very lives depend on the survival and recovery of the honeybees and other pollinators. Educating beekeepers in sustainable methods since 1996, we have already positively influenced the growth of benign beekeeping methods. The drastic reduction of food diversity (forage) for all pollinators needs positive examples of how to create healing and strengthening food supplies for them, our Hillside Restoration aims to do just that. project reportread updates from the field
Beginning the Capital Campaign: Caretaker Cottage
 
Our Sanctuary is in need of a cottage for our caretaker--the bees and the land are calling for the human presence, an element that can help to deter bears and deer, as well as providing the constant impulse of care and protection within the Sanctuary itself. At Spikenard, we don't just KEEP bees, we CARE. Please help us complete this project--we have already raised 3/4 of the 38K needed, and we would be most grateful for your support in finishing this important work. project reportread updates from the field
