    Dear Friends and Colleagues,

    We would like to personally invite you to the 2nd annual South Florida Bee College (SFBC). SFBC is one of the most extensive educational honey bee events in the state of Florida. The two-day event offers classes for beekeepers of all ages and experience levels, novices and seasoned professionals alike. Anyone else interested in honey bees is encouraged to attend, so please invite your friends! You do not have to keep bees to attend; the only prerequisite is your interest in the subject.
    SFBC will be held at UF’s Fort Lauderdale Research and Extension Center (FLREC) in Davie, Florida (Broward County) Fri-Sat, August 15th - 16th . There will be live colonies on site to facilitate hands-on classes, beekeeping vendors (think pre-orders), a live bee removal training, as well a new addition of honey processing and value added hive product classes.
    With a speaking line-up that includes members of the University of Florida’s Honey Bee Research and Extension Laboratory and the Florida Department of Agriculture Consumer Services Apiary inspection team, Master Beekeepers, as well as two national and international guests, you will not be disappointed at the quality of presentations! Please see below for links to the website and more information.
    Even if you have attended a UF Bee College before, we are sure that you will find that the SFBC will be just as fulfilling. The course lineup includes everything from basic biology to mead making, Varroa biology monitoring and control, Florida nectar plants, queen rearing, bee photography and so much more!
    Included in the registration fee on both days are a goody bag with promo items, a gold lapel pin, snacks, lunch, a catered banquet dinner on Friday evening, and an ice cream social. There will be open hive demonstrations, beekeeping gear to use, informational lectures, hands-on workshops, beekeeping vendors, awards, and door prizes.
    There will also be a 21-class Honey Show where you can enter your honey, mead, crafts, art and more for awards and the title of ‘Best Honey in South Florida!’ ANYONE can enter, even if it be the black jar (tasting only) or the novice class - for those who have never won before.
    SFBC is one of the best experiences you could possibly have learning about honey bees! Our team of experts and dedicated staff are excited to host the 2nd annual South Florida Bee College. We hope that you decide to join us!
