    Default Florida Bee College Master Beekeeper St. Augustine Florida Whitney Lab

    We have a packed schedule with over 50 courses, boasting 60% new material from previous years. This year we are hosting Dr. Wyatt Mangum, of top-bar fame, Randy Oliver of www.Scientificbeekeeping.com , Dr.s Niko and Gudrun Koeniger of Germany (famed for Asian honey bee discoveries), Michael Young, world-renowned honey judge, HBREL researchers, Florida State Apiary Inspectors and many more.

    Weve taken your past comments seriously and have made some amendments to our programming; we have a new, top-of-the-line caterer, weve rented a bigger tent, weve shortened the time between the banquet dinner and the awards ceremony and were ending the evening just a bit earlier. Ive reserved blocks of rooms at various hotels in the area and have them posted on the website: http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/honeybee/e..._college.shtml for a discounted rate. We have twice the amount of workshops and consolidated them to the afternoon, we have a Q &A session with Florida Apiary Inspector panel and have more diversity in our vendors (remember there is only a small space for vending). If you asked for a class, we tried to put it on the schedule, I hope you all are pleased! We are also re-defining our honey show with new classes and corresponding new rules and regulations. We are primed to be the one of the best shows in the county, dont be shy, enter your hard work this year! Read rules here: http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/honeybee/e...0Judging.shtml
