It’s been said that if you follow your bliss, your heart’s true desire will be realized. How fortunate it is then, when your bliss is your career and helps make the world a better place. Marin Bee Company founders, Debra and Bill Tomaszewski, find their bliss by making a difference in the world - one bee at a time.
It all started when Debra and Bill wanted to help spread the word about the worldwide die-off of the honey bee due to Colony Collapse Disorder and other environmental factors. Backyard beekeepers themselves, Deb and Bill began to teach free beekeeping workshops in their community. Soon friends, neighbors, local schools and organizations began reaching out with questions and requests to set up hives. Debra and Bill knew the time was right to take action. They imagined a world where bee hives once again flourished in home gardens as they did in their grandparents’ time. In those days, bees were as much a part of a garden as the flowers and vegetables, and people knew their gardens and their tables depended on the honeybee.
When purchasing Marin Bee products, a portion of proceeds always goes to help support their foundation, Planet Bee Foundation.
