ADEL — Beekeeping has seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years as more people purchase hives for their homes and farms. Zack Koopman, ISU Agriculture Specialist, will lead a two-hour ‘Beekeeping Basics’ course designed to introduce the fundamentals of beekeeping and help attendees decide if this hobby is right for them.


“Bees are one of the most incredible creatures on the planet. The more you learn about this complex insect beyond their great tasting honey the more fascinated you will become.” Zack Koopman
