“I have been teaching an after-school seminar on beekeeping, and one of my students found your page while looking for other resources to share with the class. I wanted to say thanks for creating your page - I found some resources on there that I had not seen elsewhere. Thought you might want to know! Carrie Cadwell, a volunteer at a local community center in the Seattle area
