We’re continuing our series of Lunch and Learn Teas, and this one is all about Bees and Pollinators. Reserve your spot now (seating is limited!) and learn from several amazing ladies how to encourage bees and pollinators in your yard and help them thrive!
I have been wanting to do this event for a year! Susan with The Carolina Honey Bee came to speak to my ladies group — Women’s Social Business Group — a few years ago and I just loved it! Who knew the bees did all this great work? Anyhow, I decided to do this whole Lunch and Learn on bees, butterflies and other pollinators. Just in time to get ready for spring. So whether you are a gardener, an admirer of nature, have a black thumb (like me) or just want to come hang out with some freaking amazing ladies, please book your space today.
An Intro to Honey Bees

In addition to running The Carolina Honey Bee Company, Susan’s beekeeping background includes her personal bee hives which she manages at home on her farm, and her commercial hives located throughout Greenville County. She is proficient in creamed and infused honey varieties as well as byproducts of the bee hive.
