Wild Everlasting | Fonta Molyneaux

Mandy met today’s guest last October at the Oregon State Beekeepers Association conference. They had recently connected on social media so they weren't complete strangers, but they had never met her in person. Fonta greeted Mandy with the most generous hug and genuine enthusiasm for this show (even though it was still in its infancy). Their paths crossed again in person when they both presented at the Feminine Legacy in Beekeeping conference last May and they happened to be staying at the same B&B. It was a totally bonding experience for them and they have been very close ever since. Though they are separated by a 4 hour drive and don’t get to hang out very often, when they do it is a total bee girl party. This summer Mandy got to go visit Fonta at her biodynamic farm in Cottage Grove, which is lovingly named Wild Everlasting. It is a place that is dedicated to the health of pollinators, and has been recognized as an Oregon Bee Project Flagship Farm. Mandy is so excited to introduce you to her friend and bee goddess, Fonta Molyneaux!
