The Orange Blossom Beekeepers Association (OBBA) is a collective of backyard, side-liner, and commerical beekeepers in Central Florida. The club strives
to mentor novices and to serve as a resource for experienced beekeepers.
OBBA seeks to educate the public about the importance of bees and beekeeping.
Throughout the year, OBBA conducts interactive workshops in its apiary and brings in expert speakers for monthly club meetings. OBBA attends and hosts educational events throughout Central Florida.
Motto: Creating beekeepers for life
Our Mission: To educate, mentor, assist, inspire, support and promote beekeeping in the state of Florida and beyond.
We have a lot on our plate this month! First, we have Dr. Jamie Ellis speaking in the auditorium for us on Thursday, June 21st at 7:00pm. We'll be in the main auditorium where we normally meet. If you're not one of our regular members, please note that no outside food or drink is allowed in the auditorium, per UF/IFAS rules. We'd love to have you, and can seat nearly 200! Come join us!
Then, we have a pretty special workshop on Saturday, June 23rd at 9:00am in the Rose Room. This room is to the right, across from the auditorium, and is on the same side of the extension as our apiary. Follow the smell of honey! There's a fee of $10 for this one, to cover the cost of the honey you'll be taking home! Harvest your own honey from our bees we've been working during the workshops all Spring!
Sign up here for tickets, so we have a mostly accurate head count!
If you need beekeeping supplies be sure to pre-order from D&J apiary by calling them at 352-669-4233. They'll be outside the auditorium around 6:30pm, as usual.
See you on June 21st!
