Brian Campbell, the lead instructor of the Langara Sustainable Urban Beekeeping Program and the founder of Blessed Bee Apiaries and the Bee School. He became immersed in the rich and amazing world of bees while he and his four sons spent many a glorious day observing the curious activities of bees: noticing their consistent patterns, collective activities, and the surprising comparisons to our own human patterns and behaviours. He is a certified bee master and beekeeper, and heavily involved in food security issues in Richmond and the Lower Mainland. He is a former president of the Richmond Beekeepers Association, a member of the Master Gardener Association of BC, and a Sustainable Gardening and Bee Master to West Coast Seeds
