Empowering Veterans to Thrive in Agriculture

Andrew Joseph is the State Apiarist  and Bee Inspector for Iowa.  Mr. Joseph is also a Cherry Glen Learning Farm board member.

Mr. Joseph, is interested in teaching a Master Bee Keeper course at Cherry Glen Learning Farm for veterans.  This class is for existing bee keepers, not for the beginner bee keeper.
There has been a big increase in student and adult beginner bee keepers across Iowa.
We could start the class in January 2017 or February 2017.
