Julia Common is one of our beekeeping educators, a Master Beekeeper and has been keeping bees since her university days. What started as a summer job became a life long passion which only in the past two years has been fully realized. Hives for Humanity was founded in response to the incredible reception her bees received in the Downtown East Side of Vancouver. Now with over 200 hives and 50 sites throughout Vancouver communities, Julia, as Chief Beekeeper for Hives for Humanity, has a story to share.
She finds joy in teaching others the art and practice of beekeeping.
