Toni Burnham

Toni Burnham

Toni became an urban beekeeper on April 9, 2005, when two packages of Italian bees from Georgia were placed in her hands in a park outside Baltimore, Maryland. Over the past decade-plus, those bees have led to revelations, friendships, adventures, anxieties, community organizing, teaching, learning, the legalization of beekeeping in DC, and a deeply humbling daily joy for the chance to work with and for these creatures. Burnham now runs about 20 hives in a half dozen apiaries, is former president of the Maryland State Beekeepers Association, founder of the DC Beekeepers Alliance, and mentor to local beekeepers.
