We would like to thank Nancy and Joe Taverniti for their wonderful and generous hospitality in hosting the Escarosa Beekeepers Association Annual BeeFest and Open Hive Demonstration last May. It was quite a success. We had a great deal of fun, food and entertainment. Looking forward to doing it again next year.

Escarosa Beekeepers Association BeeFest 2012

  

On August 18th, 2012, the Escarosa Beekeepers’ Association set up shop in lovely and historic downtown Pensacola at the Palafox Farmer's Market,
in the Martin Luther King Plaza, in celebration of National Honeybee Day.
For six hours, our little group of beekeepers entertained the crowds with honey samples, an observation hive, and some fun honeybee artwork giveaways.
The day was a resounding success. 
Two of the most often asked questions were: (1) How are the bees? and (2) How can I start beekeeping?
We saw hundreds of people, passed out literature, fielded questions and shared recipes for delicious honey goodies.
Several of our beekeepers donated honey to be sold at the event, with all proceeds going to benefit the club.
We're looking forward to bringing a 4 foot observation hive next year. Come check us out.
