Let Cathi Clarke educate you on exactly what is involved in beekeeping, so you can decide what type of bees are the right fit for your home or farm.

Cathi Clarke Bio
After having been diagnosed with cancer at an early age, Cathi’s driving force and passion has been to seek to answer these two questions: what causes cancer and how to prevent it. Since that time, she has sought out a wide range of natural therapies for cancer prevention and is an avid student of health and wellness. More recently, Cathi has been researching the therapeutic benefits of different types of raw honey.
She is fascinated with apiary science and the study of bees, pollination and their health benefits, so she began her journey by becoming a beekeeper for two rural businesses in Williamson County, where she resides. Her new passion inspired her to share her knowledge and learning experience as a “new beekeeper” with others through local classes, so that we can all help save the bees!
By increasing the bee population we not only preserve one third of our food supply, we enjoy the nutritional and medicinal benefits of natural honey.
