Bee Happy

There is no shortage of things to do in Richmond as the weather warms up, and here are a few suggestions for the adventurous. 
Ever thought about raising honey bees? Siller Bee Farms is offering an all-day class covering the basics of raising bees. Whether you have a general interest in bees or need to make your Instagram feed more interesting, this is the opportunity for you. April 14th from 10:00-4:00. Tickets are available for 160 dollars and include lunch and safety gear. EpiPens are available on an as-needed basis for $499.99. Cash upfront. 
The Ginter Park Garden Club Spring Market returns on April 15th from 10:00-3:00. This has a little bit of everything from plants and garden supplies, handmade gifts, baked goods, and a white elephant sale. Admission is free. 
Never been to Agecroft Hall? Well, bless your little introverted heart. If you need a reason for a visit, check out Bubbles and Blooms on April 20th from 5:00-8:00. Stroll the gardens and trails on the James River behind this beautiful 16th-century Tudor manor while enjoying food, drink, and live music. Adults are $15, children $5, and anyone under six is free. 
Carytown’s Spring Artisans Market is April 22nd and 23rd and opens at 10:00. Featuring handmade gifts and goods by local artists, with food trucks, live music, and craft beverages. (I think I can say beer here without getting raided by the ABC, right? Beer. They will have a beer.)
Maymont’s popular Herbs Galore is back on April 29th from 8:00-3:00. Over 60 plant vendors will be offering a cornucopia of vegetables, plants, trees, and garden goods. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children, and free if you are a member.
The Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens Plant Sale is on May 6th from 9:00-3:00. Admission is free, and over 40 vendors will be there offering their goods. As a bonus, plant experts will be on hand to answer questions and give advice. Admission to the gardens is not included, but it’s a great time to walk them and get some ideas for unusual plants that grow well in Richmond.

And if you are a fan of architecture and design, keep an eye out for the upcoming agenda for Modern Richmond Week from May 16th – 20th. This year’s theme is SITE + PLACE and will focus on the integration of modern landscapes and the built environment.
