Beekeeping will be the subject of the next Adair County Garden Club meeting, at 1pmCT, at the Adair County Extension Office, 409 Fairground Street, Columbia, KY, with Beth Wilson, Pulaski County Horticulturist, the speaker. The main focus will be on sustaining bees as pollinators - but a big benefit is also honey, like the comb in product ACGS President Donna Jones sold at the Farmers Market on the Square last July. Interest in beekeeping is on the rise in South Central Kentucky. There are two beekeeping clubs, one of which meets in Russell County, the other in Taylor, And Bill Troutwine - a beekeeper, has given CM a tip on one beekeeper who travels with his bees from Adair County to Mississippi to pollinate cotton! We welcome more on that and other beekeeping enterprises. Bees are basic to sustaining the work of the growing truck farming economy in the area. - EW
