Things were buzzing around Landmark Park today.
The Alabama Beekeepers Association hosted a workshop on honey extraction.
Guests watched as honey was extracted from the hives by hand.
Beekeepers made sure not to waste anything from the hive.
Cappings were used to make soap, lip balm, and lotion.
The group hopes the workshops will raise awareness about the importance of honeybees.
"People selling cantaloupes and melons, that's where the honeybee's real value comes in as a pollinator with stone fruits and apples," says William Miller, Wiregrass Beekeepers Association.
The group extracted 25 gallons of honey, which is currently on sale at the park.
The Beekeepers Association meets the first Thursday of every month at the County Agriculture Center at 7:00pm.
