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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
