Did you know 1/3 of the world’s crops are pollinated by honeybees? Or that honeybees “dance” to communicate the location of nearby nectar? Sadly, the population of these amazing creatures is in rapid decline, but there are simply ways we can help. Fairchild is honoring these incredible insects with a weekend of beekeeping demos, honeybee products for sale, and lectures on what we can do to protect the bee population.

About Historic Virginia Key Beach:

2015 marks the 70th year Anniversary of the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park. In the 40’s, 50’s & 60’s Virginia Key Beach located on the island of Virginia Key, was designated as a unique vacation spot strictly for blacks. Located in Dade-County, this beach was the answer (for people of color) to South Florida’s whites-only beaches pre-1960’s Civil Rights. By 1979, Virginia Key Beach had been transferred to the City of Miami and was transformed into park status. Then in 1982 the park closed and was left abandoned until 2008. During the nearly 20 years of abandonment, the Virginia Key Beach Park Trust was formed and the park saw life again! This committee of dedicated people achieved getting the park placed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Florida Historic Marker. This “Paradise Renewed” is also designated as a Historic Site by the Miami Historic & Environmental Preservation Board! Today, Historic Virginia Key Beach Park is an anchor in the rebirth of the beautiful natural island of Virginia Key, “Miami’s Central Park”!
