Bryn Jones began Honey Bee Haven's commercial bee work around 2010 The foci of our work at www.honeybeehaven.ca, are in five areas: 1) Distributing the Technosetbee America line of honey bee hive products in Western Canada. 2) Installing, caring and managing sustainable honey bee colonies, for residential gardens in local neighbourhoods throughout BC Lower Mainland cities and municipalities, as far east as Chilliwack, through host sponsorship . 3) Teaching a comprehensive course to nudge new, curious learners into becoming confident, capable beekeepers. 4) Speaking with schools, community camps and garden clubs about honey bees. 5) Selling any extra honey that bees have provided, after looking after their own colony survival needs.
Beekeeper Bryn began minding bees in 1990 as a hobby. He gained Journeyman Beekeeper Certification at U. Montana and Beemaster Certification from U. British Columbia, then became a certified beekeeping instructor for the BC Honey Producers Association. After 40 years in public schools, he retired from teaching children in 2016, to pursue Honey Bee Haven beekeeping full-time. Bryn gets extra help and guidance from wife Lynn and dog Sam, as they see fit.
