    It started with an email note from a Mr. K. Hamdan from the Netherlands, asking permission to use some of our photos from our website for an article he was writing on using powdered sugar for varroa control for beekeepers in the Middle East.  I was intrigued and asked for a copy when he was done and wondered if I could put it on our website. 
   Turns out, my new friend, Khalil has written a whole series of articles, complete with incredible photographs,  from basic beekeeping to raising queens. 
These beautifully written articles are also transcribed in Arabic, soon to be published  in Jordan to help  people across the Middle East learn to become beekeepers so they can generate income and improve their lives .  Pretty exciting stuff.
