Bees are an important part of the ecosystem, pollinating plants and making honey. A new LSU AgCenter program is helping potential beekeepers learn the business of bees.
LSU AgCenter Correspondent Tobie Blanchard visited one of the training sessions.
A plan is underway to have other agents offer the basic beekeeper training in other parts of the state. Eventually they will create a master beekeeper program modeled after the AgCenter’s master gardener and master farmer programs.
