One of the things you’ll notice about The BeeKeeper, if you spend much time with him, is that he relishes the feeling of a good day’s work. As a result, he seeks opportunities to put his hands to projects that create something worthwhile; that result in some positive outcome.
For example: building a house. He’s been busy building us a home while maintaining all his hives and caring for his bees, and tending to his corporate day job. The BeeKeeper knows how to work hard.
And he works hard to make sure good things come from his actions. As a beekeeper, one thing that matters is the environment and health. Beekeepers are not fond of pesticides and this beekeeper is also concerned about the environmental and health impact of building materials.
Yay! The BeeKeeper’s Wife has a sensitive system and really appreciates his concern.
So he researched and made calls and developed relationships with manufacturers until he settled on hemp insulation for our house. It’s super non-toxic. So much so that The BeeKeeper’s Wife, (that’s me!) was able to stage the hemp insulation in the house all day in bunches of 2-4 without safety glasses or mask and with sleeves rolled up. It smells like a grassy field. No off-gassing because no chemicals. Happy dance!
So in case you wonder what The BeeKeeper does when not tending bees, you now have some idea. He’s a living example of how to apply one’s energy to creating something good.
Love to The BeeKeeper.
Jana, The BeeKeeper’s Wife
