Beekeeping Course




    Clay County Extension Office is offering a beginners course on beekeeping. The interactive course will give participants the chance to work with an existing hive at the Extension Center. The course will allow participants to receive a complete perspective on the process/expense involved with keeping honeybees. Because this activity involves direct contact with a stinging insect, youth under 18 years will not be permitted to interact with the ‘open hive’ portion of the course. There is a $12.00 registration fee ($20.00 per couple).

     The class will be held March 23rd from 8:30am to 3:15pm at the Clay County Extension Office: 2463 SR 16 West, Green Cove Springs 32043. To register, please visit: http://clay.ifas.ufl.edu/Agriculture/2013_BeginningBeeSC_Registration.pdf.
