The ABF Education Committee presents a project to record the oral history of beekeeping using StoryCorps DIY. We agree with the StoryCorps mission of “Reminding one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters.”
The beekeeping community is a small one; however, it is changing rapidly and we would like collect, share and preserve our beekeeping history. We want to embrace the voices and stories of beekeepers and our StoryCorps DIY recordings will become a valuable archive for future generations.
To listen to the ABF community’s stories, click here: archive.storycorps.org/communities/american-beekeeping-federation
Get inspired by other stories by listening to example recordings on the StoryCorps app or storycorps.org. If you can’t record a story in person, record your audio using a program like Zoom and upload it to the ABF community page by creating a profile on a computer. You can add in a title, description and picture. Check out the StoryCorps DIY project here: diy.storycorps.org
