Bees without Boarders

Check them out HERE and HERE

Who are we? Why are we here? And what's that buzzing noise?

Bees Without Borders is the brainchild of Andrew Coté, former high school dropout and vagabond turned Fulbright Scholar and professor. He was born into a beekeeping family in Connecticut and is (at least) the 4th generation to carry on this ancient art. When he's not busy with hives, Andrew teaches English as a Second Language at Housatonic Community College and runs Silvermine Apiary, home of Andrew's Taste-Bud Bursting Local Wildflower Honey.

Through the U.S. State Department’s USAID, Andrew volunteered to go to Iraq for the summer of 2005 to assist Iraqi beekeepers. In 2007 he spent the summer in the Niger Delta teaching beekeeping. He spent January of 2008 in Kerala and Tamil Nadu in southern India, bring beekeeping skills to a small village coo
