Get Certified in Beekeeping

The USF Botanical Gardens offers a yearlong Beekeeping course, which covers basic information about what it takes to become a beekeeper. Basic bee biology, building hives, rearing queens, honey extraction and overwintering are just some of the topics touched on in the course.

The class meets at the Gardens, on the third Saturday of each month at 10 a.m. The course begins each November.  Online registration begins in late September and enrollment is limited.
