Ted Dennard taught beekeeping to village farmers in Central America while in the Peace Corps. Years later he quit his job, mortgaged his home and put all his money into creating the Savannah Bee Company.
Savannah Bee Company has always made a point to help out charities on both the local and national levels. Ted started The Bee Cause Project with plans to install 1,000 Observation Hives in Schools across the country to educate children the importance of what honeybees do for our environment.
