WMOT-FM Airs the Buzz About MTSU Beekeeping Course

MTSU Farm Manager Tim Redd and beekeeper Ed Holcombe will discuss their beginning beekeeping course on the next edition of “MTSU on the Record” with host Gina Logue at 5:30 p.m. Monday, April 30, and 8 a.m. Sunday, May 6, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).

The MTSU Farm Labs and Dairy Science Club sponsor the eight-week course each spring. The course registration fee covers all materials, including the materials for constructing a hive, the bees to start a colony and the equipment to practice beekeeping safely.

Although this spring’s class is slated to end Thursday, May 10, a waiting list is available for next spring’s class. Also, MTSU honey is available for $5 for a half-pound honey bear and $8 for a one-pound bottle. To order MTSU honey, contact Kym Stricklin at 615-898-2523 or kym.stricklin@mtsu.edu.
