Solutions for sustainable bees, beekeeping and education
Products and services
We develop sustainable bees, beekeeping practices and promote sustainable, safe economic development through the use of honeybees and products of the hive.
Sugar Shim Success!
In December SHP hosted a Sugar Shim class. Thanks to all who helped. Participants made fondant and packed it into shims with an embedded pollen patty. This feeding method can help ensure your bees have a healthy store of food for the cold months. We also took some infrared photos of hives showing cluster location.
In May, SHP hosted students from the Loudoun Country Day School for a day of hands-on learning and working with bees. Education is a big part of our mission. See the highlights in the video below.
SHP is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization that promotes sustainable practices in beekeeping. In addition, our program is distributed both domestically and internationally as a vehicle for regional economic development.
Winter Is Coming
The cold weather is here! Hopefully is everyone is mite free and well prepared for the Winter dearth. Attend our shim class to see how you can help give your bees some stores.
With the passing of Billy and changes in the SHP operations, we are taking time to consider the future of SHP. Look for announcements coming soon...
