The Tropical Beekeepers Association meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the Fruit & Spice Park at 7pm.
The guest speaker is Humberto Freire Boncristiani, former research assciate at USDA in Gainesville, on the topic of Understanding Honeybee Viruses.
This can be a confusing topic, so please bring your questions.
The beekeepers are a non-profit organization dedicated to educating and sharing the importance of honey bees and their critical importance in the natural world. Beekeepers of all levels are welcome to join their mission to raise awareness and conserve South Florida’s honey bee population.
Whether you’re a newbie or seasoned beekeeper, you’re welcome to attend the meetings, which are free for members and $10 donation for guests. Annual membership is $35 per household.
Please bring snacks, finger food, fruits or sweets to share.
