A Beginner Beekeeper Short Course is now available on September 28, 2013!
This course is offered from 8am - 1pm, and it is a half day class full of information to get started as a beekeeper.
The Purpose of the Course: Over the last decade, local honey bee colonies have had a
major problem and are declining due to pest and diseases. This has led to serious
pollination problems and the need to introduce more managed hives into our county.
You can become part of the solution to our sparse pollination problem by becoming
a hobby beekeeper.
You can find more information at about the Beekeeper Course and other events by visiting the Jacksonville Beekeepers Association's website.
The course is being offered at the Duval County Agriculture Extension Center,
1010 N. McDuff Avenue, Jacksonville Florida 32254
