Jeff Asbury will lead this free 90-minute evening workshop on beginning beekeeping. It will focus on starting and managing a hive from a beginner’s perspective. The workshop runs from 7:00 – 8:30 on March 28 at the Kerr Center ranch outside Poteau.

Mr. Asbury, who resides in Le Flore, ran 4,000 hives in California for a number of years before working in the queen industry for a couple of years. After moving to Oklahoma about 11 years ago, he ran 700 hives, working them from here to North Dakota. He has worked with several bee clubs, and has extensive knowledge of pollination.

The workshop is free and open to the public, but advance registration (by 5:00 P.M. on March 27) is required to reserve one of the limited spaces available.
