The Not-So-Secret Life of Bees
May 9, 2021
Elena Getsios, who just finished her third-year behavioral neuroscience and philosophy major at Northeastern, got a taste for beekeeping after attending an event about the craft a few years ago.
She jumped at the chance to learn more when she saw that the university offered a co-op at Best Bees, an urban beekeeping company located in Boston’s South End neighborhood. The company, founded by Noah Wilson Rich who graduated from Northeastern in 2005, also provided Getsios with something a little different than the normal 9 to 5 office job.
Checking on the health of hives in the city and in fields around Greater Boston was just the “alternative work experience,” that she’d been seeking.
