Event description

Description

UF/IFAS Caribbean Bee College is a three day event offering training for beekeepers and bee enthusiasts.

November 27th and 28th will be full days of training with lectures in the morning and and hands-on practice of beekeeping techniques in the afternoon. These days will be divided into two tracks: beginner (for new beekeepers) and advanced (for current beekeepers looking to improve their skills). On November 28th, you will also have the opportunity to test for the Apprentice Beekeeper certificate (University of Florida Master Beekeeper Program)

On November 29th, there will be an optional "Products of the Hive" workshop (spaces limited, registration required) or you can enjoy a fun and relaxing Bahamian beach day or another local excursion (details TBA, costs not included in registration fees).

All attendees MUST have protective beekeeping equipment (a veil at minimum). If you do not currently have your own protective gear, you may purchase some at checkout. Veils, suits, jackets, and gloves are available at a discounted rate!
