Recipe: Southern Honey-Pecan Pie

“Honeybees are a complex creature that we love to work with, ” says CommonGround Minnesota volunteer Sara Hewitt. “My husband says, checking hives is methodical and relaxing yet challenging and complicated as you care for each individual hive, learning its quirks and rhythm. Much like animals have personality, each hive does too.”

Meet Sara and other volunteers with CommonGround Minnesota.
