Guest Speaker: Denice Teti

June 13 @ 10:30 am - 10:30 pm

Topic: Beauty and the Bees

June 13, 2024, 10:30-11:30

Denice Garell-Teti’s interest in honeybees peaked when she attended a workshop that was offered locally as an introduction to beekeeping. She was fascinated by them and as her interest increased, the learning curve began! She purchased her first hive and placed it on a friend’s property in the Hamilton region. That first hive has grown into 8 hives at present with the goal to add more hives each year!

Denice is a member of the Ontario Beekeeping Association and volunteers her time with them as part of several committees. She also belongs to the Ontario Women’s Beekeeping Network. This group’s “joy in sharing knowledge” encourages Denice to stay engaged and continue her passion for lifelong learning. A strong supporter of women in beekeeping, Denice’s future goal is to pay it forward to mentor female beekeepers at her apiary.

Denice has had prize-winning success in entering her honey at many Ontario Fairs. In addition to producing honey for family, friends, and honey aficionados, Denice enjoys creating interesting hive products from beeswax and experimenting with honey in recipes. She is currently writing a children’s colouring book on bees.

“Bees are important teachers. What I observe about their fascinating and complex behaviours can help us learn more about ourselves.”
