Be sure to attend the May meeting to hear Jennifer Holmes tell us how to make mead. Jennifer is a UFIFAS Master Beekeeper, a Welsh Honey Judge (TCBA South Chapter), and Vice President for the Treasure Coast Beekeepers Association and the Florida State BeekeepersAssociation.

Jennifer is passionate about educating others about keeping honey bees, and welcomes giving presentations to community organizations.

 

Important Message for all Members ! 

Join a committee to help our club meet its goal of educating society about the importance of bees.  Help spread the word about our beautiful pollinators and help others to understand why the bees are so very important.   Florida's agricultural economy is estimated at 120 billion a year.  It starts with bees and pollination.  We have several outreach programs ahead, we would like to help promote a new state of the art FL. Bee lab.  Please volunteer and help us promote Bee Awareness! Thank you for supporting our club.
