Kamal was a BUZZ with excitement. I can hardly BEElieve the experience that was delivered to me. Puns aside, this was a great experience with someone whose passion and knowledge about bees was obvious. The experience started with an educational session on beekeeping, then was followed by actual bee keeping work. We all put on the proper equipment and then tended to several bee boxes. The session was as described, concise and to the point, and definitely worth the time! A must for those who are interested in bees!

Exceeded expectations. A very insightful and interesting experience. I didn’t know what to expect but left wanting to start my own hive and support Kamal’s effects in the community. What he does with kids and beekeeping is amazing. I am a big fella and Jamal even had a suit for me.

I had a lovely and informative time with Kamal and the beehives. I was inquisitive about beekeeping before so this experience makes me want to pursue beekeeping further. Kamal knows his stuff! And I love how he is partnering with students to impart knowledge to them on beekeeping among horticultural other things. I hope to visit Sankofa Farms again soon.

This was so interesting! I left there ready to set up hives the next day. He really understands bees and explains things so well. He is passionate and a natural teacher. It was so cool seeing the bees and understanding the hive. He took time with each of us to make sure we understood how things worked. If you are in the area I highly recommend this experience.

Bees in the T.R.A.P. with Kamal was such a positive experience! His background into farming and beekeeping is so unique and his passion for educating and providing healthy food for people near food deserts was very eye opening. He was so easy to interact with and so personable with his teaching. Can’t wait to learn even more about bees now, and I will certainly be following how Sankofa Farms continues to develop!
