Welcome! My name is Kelly Goodwin, and I live in the Coast Range west of Eugene. Those of us who keep bees in Lane County are fortunate enough to have access to the Lane County Beekeepers Association, an organization dedicated to outreach, education. and support. This site aspires to complement the LCBA’s efforts by encouraging the formation of an online community, a place where we can connect any time, no matter how far flung our bee yards may be.
During my short time as a beekeeper, I’ve been impressed by the fact that there are “a thousand ways to do it right.” With that in mind, I chose the name HiveWays, plural, to reflect the idea that, though we may have different ways of doing things in our bee yards, they may indeed all work. So whether we use traditional methods, the latest new technology, or some mix in between, we have a voice and an ear here. Let us use both with patience and generosity!
