Introduction to Beekeeping: A Hobby with Sweet Rewards ~ Session 2 of 3

July 14 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

This is part two of a three part series!

This program will cover what it takes to get started in this amazing hobby with a focus on the equipment and tools necessary for beekeeping. We will review the components of the “modern” bee hive, the tools used by beekeepers, and demystify the seemingly countless number of paraphernalia available for the hobbyist beekeeping.

In addition we will discuss the proper locations for beehives and explain Florida’s rules and guidelines.

Instructor: Robert Burkard, President of the Friends of Brooker Creek Preserve’s Beekeepers Club

Additional Notes: This program will be held in our auditorium. It takes about 10 minutes to drive from the preserve entrance (Keystone Rd.) to the parking lot, and there is a 2-5 minute walk from the parking lot to the auditorium. Follow signs to the auditorium.

Register for Part 3 on Sunday July 21st here!
