Introducing the New ABQ Beeks Leaders:

Lu Lu Sage has adored plants and native bees since she was a little girl growing up just outside of Boston. When the dandelions and forsythia were blooming and bumble bees emerged from the stone walls that surrounded her yard she knew the riot of spring had begun. Lu Lu has been observing native bees in her bee boxes and hard-pack earth yard for 10 years. She built 2 top bar hives in 2015, graduated in the first certification class and has been enjoying the honey bee show in her yard ever since. She's an advocate for weeds, bees and native plants and loves to share her passion for all living things. She's just about run out of room to plant any more trees or plants in her yard.... maybe she'll have to buy another yard!

John is a graduate of the NMBKA certification program and has been keeping bees for 3 years in Corrales and North Valley areas. John is currently serving as the treasurer on the NMBKA Certification board and teaches some classes in the program as well as mentors at the open space a couple times a year. His love for bees started with gardening and a fascination with all that bees offer to teach us.

Amy started keeping bees when she joined the ABQ Beeks mentor program, and received a split from her mentor.  Soon after, she began and completed the NMBKA certified beekeepers program.  Amy served on the board of NMBKA, and now has three hives at her home in the East Mountains.  She also helps manage three hives in the NE Heights of Albuquerque.  Amy's desire to advocate for pollinators and beekeepers, and to network with other groups is rooted in her social work background.  She is enthusiastic about what ABQ Beeks can accomplish.
