Today, we honour beekeeper Gretchen Wheen.

Gretchen had a sharp mind and generous spirit, along with a passion for bees and beekeeping.



.

She was one of Australia's best known beekeepers. Gretchen was one of the first suppliers of quality queen bees to Australian and international commercial beekeepers. She was a pioneer in instrumental insemination of queen bees, and passionate about the importance of stock improvement.

Gretchen dedicated much of her estate to the establishment of the Wheen Bee Foundation.
