    Panhandle Bee College is less than two months away. Have you bought your tickets yet? This event will be held at Blountstown High School in Blountstown, Florida on March 23rd and 24th. Our speakers include David Westervelt, Jamie Ellis, Cameron Jack, and many more from the UF Honey Bee Lab and Florida Department of Ag. There will be a variety of courses offered such as Beginning Beekeeping, Native Bees, and Wax Rendering; classes to fit every aspect of bees and beekeeping. Friday, we will be having an auxiliary lunch at a pioneer settlement with tours of the historic honey house and a special talk from David Westervelt on The History of Beekeeping. We will also be holding a Honey Show on Friday as well. There are so many ways that you can be involved in the honey show, but the easiest way is to simply bring in a jar of your own honey for a blind tasting. You could have the best tasting honey right in your backyard! The Honey Bee Lab is very excited for this event and we hope that you are as well. Tickets are limited, so register today on the Eventbrite website! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/panhand...on-40879931977 If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at any time. Happy Beekeeping!!

    Best,
