Georgia Prison Beekeeping Program
The initial goal of the Georgia Prison Beekeeping Program was to educate inmates in the art of beekeeping, but it has gone much further than that. Aside from general beekeeping skills, students have acquired additional skills, from learning how to read, to woodworking, welding, painting and writing. Since becoming certified, several have gone on to complete their GEDs.
Master Beekeeper Program
The Georgia Master Beekeeper Program is an intensive four-step program designed to provide participants the opportunity to increase their knowledge about all things dealing with bees and beekeeping. This program gives participants the opportunity to learn and also teach others about beekeeping and promote the industry. It also helps establish the participant as an authority and an educational resource in his or her community.
Young Harris Institute
The Young Harris Institute's goal is to bring together some of the best beekeeping educators and scientists in the world to inspire learning across all levels of beekeeping, whether experienced or beginner. The result is one of the best educational (and fun!) beekeeping events in North America.
