Meet Beezie the Bee Lady
Barbara “Beezie” Fleming has been a hobbyist beekeeper in the lowcountry for 25 years. berkeleybees, our hometown support and educational group for beekeepers, was founded through the Berkeley Soil and Water Conservation District under her leadership. berkeleybees and the Soil and Water Conservation District works closely with other agencies and groups to help farmers, landowners, and our community at large by providing education and assisting with the conservation and preservation of our natural resources. Her appropriate nickname, given at the age of 2 by a sibling, was ‘sweet’ foreshadowing of her passion for the fascinating, honey producing pollinators!
Beezie currently serves as the Director of District Operations for the Berkeley Soil and Water Conservation District. She sits on the Board of Directors for the Berkeley County Farm Bureau Federation and the Advisory Council for Berkeley County Clemson Extension as well as being a member of the SC Wild Hog Task Force.
