Hi Amy,

I would be happy to meet you and am also a (retired) clinical and school social worker.  Let me know when you are making the move and getting your bees.  Phill Remick, who lives in Edgewood, sells equipment and will have a smoker and hive tool. His phone number is:505-589-4398.  His business is New Bee Rescue -- you can google it and get his e-mail address.  Looking forward to meeting you soon, Sarah Malone, Cedar Crest
