  • Oct 2 In the Apiary (Facebook Live) We are continuing our In the Apiary series as we visit apiaries across the state and work hives. Learn from beekeepers throughout Georgia from the comfort of home as this series will be broadcast via Facebook Live! Each beekeeper has their own expertise and preferences that they bring to their apiary. We look forward to highlighting those differences so that others may discover their own blend of art and science when it comes to the keeping of bees. Our second In the Apiary program will travel to the North Georgia mountains to be with Georgia Certified Beekeeper and Pollinator Health Program Associate, Becky Griffin. Be sure to tune in live to have the opportunity to ask questions and be a part of the fun!

Extension Publications
  • Native Plants for Georgia Part I: Trees, Shrubs and Woody Vines (B 987) This publication focuses on native trees, shrubs and woody vines for Georgia. It is not our intent to describe all native species — just those available in the nursery trade and those that the authors feel have potential for nursery production and landscape use. Rare or endangered species are not described. Information on each plant is provided according to the following categories: Common Name(s)/Botanical Name/Family, Characteristics, Landscape Uses, Size, Zones and Habitat.
  • Vegetable Garden Calendar (C 943) The recommendations in this circular are based on long-term average dates of the last killing frost in the spring and first killing frost in the fall. Every year does not conform to the "average," so you should use your own judgment about advancing or delaying the time for each job, depending on weather conditions.
  • Your Household Water Quality: Odors in Your Water (C 1016) Homeowners sometimes experience unpleasant odors in their household water. In many cases, the exact cause of the odor is difficult to determine by water testing; however, this publication provides a few general recommendations for treating some common causes of household water odors.
