Sierra Malnove is a mother of three children and a passionate beekeeper who took the fast track on the beekeeping express, growing from 1 to 400 hives in under four years. She believes in treatment-free beekeeping and helping people to discover their beekeeping potential. Sierra was the Speaker Coordinator and the elected Vice President in 2015 for the Palm Beach County Beekeepers Association and in 2014, coordinated the most successful Florida State Beekeepers Association Conference in recent history. In 2014, Sierra co-founded the Florida Backyard Beekeepers Association (FBBA), a non-profit organization, and enjoys teaching backyard beekeeping courses and connecting beekeepers through the FBBA. Sierra is a certified queen breeder, does live bee removals and relocations, offers private hive management and gives guided beekeeping lessons. Sierra's goal is for everyone to have a positive experience with bees.

Bees Learning Event 101

Everyone, I had fun and hoped that you learned some basics. One thing when you order the equipment you need to make sure that the deep (9 5/8) box and super (6 5/8) box comes with frames and foundation's. If not you will have to order 10 for each box. Also, don't forget the mentor tab. Contact the individual closest to you by zip code. They are there to help. Happy beekeeping!See More
