Beekeeping & Honey Bee Education
Honey bees play a valuable role in our food system and environment by providing pollination services to plants and producing honey and related products. Beekeepers support pollination activity and honey production by managing domesticated European honey bee (EHB) hives also known as apiaries. The University of California Cooperative Extension San Diego is collaborating with key partner stakeholders to share information on bee health and beekeeping best management practices, including current research and regulations.

Live Well In The Garden
Gardening has many health benefits from improving diet and increasing physical activity to reducing the effects of chronic health conditions such as arthritis, depression, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and diabetes. It's also a great way to connect with friends and family. It's "good for body and mind," according to the American Public Health Association, "and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Plus, you get to eat the delicious fruits, vegetables, and herbs that you grow. So, grab your tools and get in the dirt!"
