Cancellation Policy

We understand that things come up and plans change. Please notify us as soon as you know you are unable to make it to an appointment or class. For events such as retreats or classes, refund policies vary and can be found on the website pages for each offering. More notice is needed for retreats and classes due to the costs involved to create the offering, and the limited spaces available. For beekeeping services: all services are weather dependent since rain could negatively impact your bees. If it is raining on the day of the appointment, you will be notified in the morning of the appointment. If it continues to rain, and cancellation within an hour of the appointment time is necessary, you will receive a message to reschedule. We appreciate your understanding. Thank you
