Last week I visited the Apiary at Portland State University and spoke with Isabel Rummell, the student tasked with caring for the bees and supporting student involvement in the program. I met Isabel at Zenger Farm, here in Portland where Portland Urban Beekeepers keeps its club apiary. We hold work parties twice a month to beekeepers of all experience levels. When I invited myself to the apiary at PSU she generously accepted because she is one of the nicest people EVER. We inspected their 2 beehives and sat down for a chat in one of their beautiful student plazas. In this interview I share one of my techniques to prevent bee stings that anyone can do (hint: it involves throwing things).
