Did you know that 1/3 of everything you eat is a result of honey bee pollination?


Humankind depends on these fascinating animals for food, as well as many other hive products that improve our health and wellbeing.


But honey bees face many challenges in today’s world. Both hobby and professional beekeepers are needed to help maintain the populations of this vital creature. This day-long beekeeping school will seek to help advance the knowledge base of both novice and experienced beekeepers alike.


So, catch the buzz and get ready for the gardening season and spring nectar flow! Open to anyone over the age of 12.


Come learn the basics of beekeeping from Coastal Empire Beekeepers Assn. members through classroom and hands-on experiences. Topics range from "getting started" to "managing your bees in an urban environment." As part of your $50 registration fee, you will receive the book "First Lessons in Beekeeping" by Keith S. Delaplane. 


Registration fee is required and $50 per person. Click here or stop by Oatland Islands Main Building Welcome Desk or call (912) 395-1500 to reserve your spot for this years FUNdamentals of Beekeeping Workshop!
