Chapter Meeting - The Basics of Bee Keeping.

What is all the buzz about bees? Find out what a beekeeper does and learn ways to attract bees to your garden. Many native plant fans already understand the role of pollinators in the landscape (and also in agriculture.) In their effort to gather nectar and pollen for food, pollinators are a critical link in the fertilization process of many plants. Bees are one of the best pollinators and there are many species of native bees as well as the honey bees normally kept in maintained hives.


Come and discover the remarkable and busy life of the bee who helps propagate plants as well as providing a delicious sweetener.


Nancy Ham has been a bee keeper for five years. She is an advanced student in the University of Florida Master Beekeeper Program. She is also a Teaching assistant at the University of South Florida Apiary program and a Master Gardener.


Our meetings include light refreshments and a native plant auction after the speaker. We have many knowledgeable members who will help you with your native plant questions. Please come and join us.

    I'd really like to attend this, but already have plans for Wednesday. Hopefully I'll make it in October. BTW - I have a colony of bees that I'd like removed from my house in St Pete. If anyone knows a bee keeper who can do this (cheaply?) please have them contact me. Thanks. I look forward to meeting all of you.
