Our focus in 2017 will be to grow our apiary & public programs, along with watching our Pollination Garden evolve as Master Gardeners help design our apiary’s new look for 2017.
Saturday Events on Oatland Island:
CEBA committees are working to build our Saturday Programs into a Demo Educational / Apiary morning of activity. We will send out updates as this evolves.
URBAN BEEKEEPING IS NOW LEGAL inside the city limits of Savannah! In October of 2015, the City Counsel voted to adopt the same ordinance used by the Chatham County Animal Control. The interest in beekeeping is spiking again for CEBA, especially with our programs growing at Oatland Island. We invite guest to come and check us out, as we would love to share our experiences in beekeeping with you.
