Couples Keeping

Couples Keeping 
$40 a couple

This class is designed for ALL couples from 18-100 years old. This is a great opportunity to for those thinking about starting a backyard beehive or are just curious about what is involved with beekeeping and wanting to learn more about honey bees. This class is a great way to connect with each other and participate in a hobby where a passion is shared. 

I have worked with couples looking for a fun and creative date activity and I have worked with newly weds thinking about adding a colony or two to their new "family."  I have also worked with retired couples looking for a healthy, fun, and engaging outlet to do together.  I am located in very close proximity to wineries, breweries, restaurants, and antique stores! Come take a class, then go grab a drink, a bite to eat or go antiquing and explore Loudoun County's countryside!

Topics I cover:

  • Biology of Honey Bees

  • Types of Honey Bees

  • Roles of Honey Bees in the Hive

  • The Queen

  • Pollination

  • Beneficial Plans

  • Honey Facts

  • The History of Beekeeping

  • What A Beekeeper Does

  • How to Help Bees 

  • Beekeeper Safety
