Mission: Our mission is to promote sustainable and biodynamic beekeeping through education, research and the development of a honeybee sanctuary where people can experience the healing of the land, the honeybees, and ultimately the human being. We work to create a biodynamically invigorated landscape in which people, plants and animals create the necessary sheaths of protection and care for all.
It is our deep commitment to understand, protect and care for this magnificent, love-imbued, but very vulnerable creature that is so close to us as human beings.
Target demographics: the honeybees and their keepers to thrive
Direct beneficiaries per year: The honeybees, native pollinators, local visitors, beekeepers, 'wanna-bees', school children, and more!
Geographic areas served: Local, National, and International
Spikenard is a sanctuary for bees and human healers of the earth alike. The courses and study offered there are cutting edge in that their perspective is bee-centric and human-partnering rather than a production-maximizing. After 18 years of beekeeping, I believe their approach is crucial not only for the bees, but possibly for the human race.
The staff and facilities of this honeybee sanctuary are top notch. Full time staff and interns make this honeybee sanctuary promoting sustainable and biodynamic beekeeping a fun and eye opening experience. I am enrolled in a two study under their guidance and am very happy I found these folks.
