Join us in the Oak Glen Pavilion on Saturday, June 8 at 1 PM to learn more about the buzzing world of the bees and beekeeping with Jeremy Rose, owner of The California Bee Company, LLC ( which exists to promote the health and well-being of honey bees. They operate approximately 500 healthy bee hives using natural management methods, and as an ongoing effort they are breeding healthy, gentle queen bees that have mite-resistant behaviors. The California Bee Company also strives to encourage small-scale beekeeping, and in 2010 published Beekeeping in Coastal California, a concise book that describes beekeeping methods as well as the flowers used by honey bees in this unique area of the world.

Presentation is $5 for SLO botanical Garden members/$10 non-members. Followed at 2 PM by a free docent-led tour of the Garden. For more information contact our Education Coordinator at or 805.541.1400x 304.
