Effingham County 4-H Bee Club presents an opportunity for its members to experience first-hand what it’s like to be a beekeeper.

The club covers honeybee topics ranging from A-Z in beekeeping. Their meetings are monthly and run from January-June, ending with a segment where kids get to harvest their very own honey crop. The 4-H Bee Club consists of two parts: An indoor classroom and an outdoor classroom.

The indoor classroom is an educational time of equipping, training, and learning beekeeping basics, and the outdoor classroom is more of a hands-on and “learn by doing” concept within the 4-H apiary.
