Join us at the University of Illinois Extension in Murphysboro for Bee Keeping 101!

Kenny Fischer, a beekeeper from Arrowhead Apiary, will share his knowledge and experience in Beekeeping 101. The discussion will cover essential aspects to consider before getting bees, how to obtain and maintain bees, where to keep them, how to care for them, and how to harvest honey.

Additionally, Maggie Ray from the University of Illinois Extension will be present to inform attendees about the services and programs offered by their local extension office.

This program would not be possible without the generous support of the Transition to Organic Partnership Program. The Transition to Organic Partnership Program (TOPP) exists to provide technical assistance and wrap-around support for transitioning and existing organic farmers.
