I’m Gwen Anderson and Glory Bee is my place, my dream.
I started bee keeping from scratch in 2015: took the University of Manitoba hobby beekeeping course; hung out at Red River Apiarist Association; bugged folks for information; got things wrong, got things right sometimes.
I hope that Glory Bee becomes a small-medium sized place–a good place for bees and a good place for honey. The place you think of as you’re stirring honey into your tea.
I hope to help bring bee keeping to Winnipeg, to help folks learn about bees and how to keep bees.
I’m in my late 50’s. I’ve worked as a steam engineer for most of my career. Steam is fascinating.
Much of the brute labour and mistake-making that Glory Bee runs on is mine though I have the great good fortune to have the labour, ideas, love and support of family, beloved friends and a crazy-talented in-house design department staffed entirely by my life’s love Bev who in addition to all the design does a good chunk of the hard labour.
I’m lucky and blessed.
If you’ve tried the honey, I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a line through the Contacts page.
