Honey bee fest


The warnings are clear and very dire: no bees = no humans. With knowledge in hand of this potential whimper-not-bang ending we face, folks are mobilizing. Urban and community beekeeping are gaining ground the same way community gardens do: little by little, person by person. Find more information on how awesome—and vital—bees are.

10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18 (aka National Honey Bee Day!), Jacksonville Fairgrounds, Downtown, honeybeeakeeper.com, free. Pro tip: Beware the teeny but mighty mites that decimate hives.
