Hi all jr beekeepers

Hi my name is Austin.  I was wondering if there are any kids out there that are also interested in beekeeping?  Hope to hear from you soon!   :roll:

I'm glad to hear kids are still interested in beekeeping.  I started keeping bees at the age of 11 in 1959.  an inquiry of your classmates at school might reveal others with the same interest.  Form a junior beekeepers club, find a beekeeper who is willing to help and have fun.

seems there are lots of Florida bee keepers.  they may not have seen your post here.  try also posting on the the other forums and i bet you'll find that some of the Florida beekeepers have bee keeping kids!
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

I'm in High school, Getting two hives for ag class, Had lots of interest from friends, and things like that. Don't know what you're asking for because a beekeeper is a beekeeper is a beekeeper.

Hi Austin

Welcome to the boards. Add to your profile where you are in Florida. I am in West Palm Beach. We have lots of Florida beekeepers here. The only problem is that all those notherners are the ones giving advice.  ;)

To those who don't know, Austin is 9 years old and actively tends his own nucs. He also helps his dad PDMattox actively in the bee yard and is a great chatter in our Voice Chat and actively becoming one of the better golfers playing Online Tiger Woods Golf.

I'd love to see more members bring their kids into the forums here in 2007 to share interests with our younger members.
