Brendhan Horne   Topic: Becoming a Beekeeper: Transitioning From Backyard to Bigger

Our very own, Brendhan Horne, will tell us his adventures as a beginning beekeeper, before creating "Bee Barf Apiaries" in 2008. Currently, Bee Barf has three apiaries with approximately 150 hive boxes.

He delights ieducating the individual and community, and you, too, will delight in his engaging and unique personality.

Brendhan served two years as Vice President of the PBCBA followed by another two years as President. There's hardly a beekeeper in S FL that doesn't know of Brendhan Horne.

Important Message for all Members !

Bee lab.  Please volunteer and help us promote Bee Awareness! Thank you for supporting our club.

A Quote by Albert Einstein

“If the bee dissapeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left.” -Albert Einstein While it seems many people are convinced Einstein said that quote above, I'm not totally convinced. Because, it's pretty common to attribute a quote to Einstein or someone else smart and important to make their point. Even if they didn't really say it.  Einstein may have actually said that at one point, but if you trace that quote back, it actually comes from Maurice…See More
