In-House

Portland, Here We Come!

On September 22nd, Stockamp & Associates will hold a "Bees Without Borders" beehive assembly event for 200 of their employees at the Dowtown Portland Waterfront Marriott. Participants will host one of the women, Raquel Morales, from the Women's Beehive Cooperative in Mexicali, Mexico. She will teach participants about beekeeping and provide a history of her team's efforts. Participants will then assemble 25 beehives which will assist the women in replacing the beehives that they lost this summer due to the extreme heat. We look forward to sharing the results with you in next month's newsletter!
