The Backstory

Tiffany began researching bees after realizing there is a large and very passionate community of bee enthusiasts across the globe. After speaking with beekeepers, bee scientists, and bee hobbyists, Tiffany realized the solitary bee community is an impactful but underserved species. Like any good maker, she grabbed some wood and started hacking away at a solitary bee house prototype.
