Beekeeping offers learning and fun for 4-H members of all ages. Is beekeeping for you? We think so!

Also, The Greene County Beekeepers Association has sponsored Greene County 4-H beekeepers since 2011. In 2019, the GCBA, via the Dave Wheeler Memorial 4-H Scholarship, will again sponsor Greene County 4-H members who elect to undertake the beekeeping project (641)https://ohio4h.org/beekeeping. While specific details will only be decided after seeing the number of new 4-H members electing to take the project (usually March), The GCBA usually provides all woodenware and frames for 1 complete hive to the 4-H member who agrees to obtain a starter colony of bees. Any 4-H member interested is encouraged to visit https://tinyurl.com/y2x7kkhv for details, or contact Dan O'Callaghan at 937-372-3005 evenings or weekends.
This is a great project to take and we hope you consider signing up for this through 4-H!
