Veteran’s Beekeeping Workshop to Be Held Next Month

A news release yesterday from Purdue University Extension indicated that, “Purdue University’s Indiana Beginning Farmer program is sponsoring a two-day workshop for veterans who want to learn about beekeeping.

“The event will be held Sept. 29-30 in Wheatfield, Indiana.

“Military veterans who work with honey bees have found this hobby or niche business venture therapeutic and stress-reducing.”

The release pointed out that, “Designed to enable participants to start and manage a beehive on their own property, participants will go home with an 8-frame beehive.

The workshop will be hands-on, and attendees are required to bring protective equipment. A veil, suit, gloves and boots or sturdy shoes are recommended.

“Each veteran can bring one family member, but they must be registered.

“Food and lodging will be provided.”

To register go to and look for the register tabs in the upper or lower right of the webpage.
