Welcome to Fleur-de-bee! I offer individuals and groups a range of education and beekeeping services.
I’d love to work with you to help you reach your beekeeping goals.
I’m a long time trainer and educator, now channeling that into teaching others information and skills about my passion – beekeeping.

Fleur-de-bee Consultation Options
Starting your own apiary: includes scouting of hive locations at your apiary location and a review of key decisions a new beekeeper will need to make and a discussion of the information you’ll need to make those decisions. I’ll also share great resources important for new beekeepers.
‘As needed’ : I provide as needed visits to your hives. This is helpful for new beekeepers as they learn about the hive during inspections as well as trouble shooting potential issues with the hive or as new stages arise, such as your first honey harvest.
Bee care: I can provide bee care while you are away from your apiary or full-time care if you want the benefits of honeybees on your property, but would like an experienced beekeeper to care for them.
Sustainable approaches: great for new or existing beekeepers who want to explore natural approaches to beekeeping, and aren’t quite sure which methods are right for them.
Customized: let’s plan a consultation which best meets your beekeeping needs!
Group Education: I provide education to beekeepers and those who want to learn about honeybees. Some presentation options:
Our favorite urban pollinator – the honeybee! Meet your local urban beekeeper – and learn how you can support a healthy local honeybee population without becoming a beekeeper yourself. This is a great presentation for neighborhood associations, garden clubs, and other groups who want to learn more about these lovely little pollinators.
Urban beekeeping 101 – urban and small space beekeeping poses it’s own opportunities and challenges. Learn how to successfully care for honey bees in a relatively small space.
Sustainable beekeeping practices for new and experienced beekeepers. Natural or sustainable beekeeping includes lots of voices and lots of methods. I review the areas of natural beekeeping and connect you to important resources in your areas of interest.
I enjoy my backyard hive and all of its benefits – pollination, supporting healthy honeybees, and the wonderful bonus of a honey harvest. There’s always something interesting and fun to experience when honeybees are around. I’m definitely beaming on the inside in this photo!
