Beekeeping is alive and well in Jamaica Plain

steph-swarm2-96221

Stephanie Elson of Jamaica Plain is as busy as a bee.  She not only keeps three hives and co-founded the Boston Beekeeping Club with her husband.  The couple also own the Benevolent Bee store in Jamaica Plain where they sell products made by using bee’s wax and honey.  The Elsons created The Organic Bee School dedicated to educating the community about bees.  The story, “Interest in beekeeping thrives in Jamaica Plain,” was written by Kristen Lee and was posted on Boston.com’s “Your Town,” Jamaica Plain edition.  The story was part of an assignment for Lisa Chedekel’s Writing for Your Town class.  Read the story.>>
