Paul Legrand has been a beekeeper for more than 25 years. When he and his wife moved to Charlottesville seven years ago he became a volunteer at Monticello and later proposed to start, maintain, and fund an apiary to help pollinate the vegetables, flowers, trees, and shrubs on the property. In 2012, he started a second apiary at the Thomas Jefferson Center for Historic Plants at Monticello’s Tufton Farm. He is in charge of both bee yards as well as a third apiary at Ash Lawn – Highland which he began in 2014.
