Virtual Beekeeping Lecture with Jonathan Bennet

March 1, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Jonathan Bennett is as unique as he is interesting. He has faced challenges his entire life having been born with spina bifida. He hasn’t let this stop him from pursuing his agricultural ambitions as he got his education from the College of the Ozarks with his bachelor’s in animal science and agriculture business. In recent years, he has expanded the family farm outside Cabool, Missouri producing registered shorthorn cattle, pure Spanish goats, and bees. He currently maintains 5 production hives and several nucleolus colonies.

Jonathan encourages people of all ages and abilities to keep bees if it is of their interest. In his presentation he will share ways he has adapted his beekeeping to his physical ability and future plans to continue to improve the adaptability of his apiary to his physical ability.

This lecture will have ASL Interpretation and auto-generated closed captioning available.

This lecture is free but we welcome donations to help offset programming costs. Please note that this lecture will not be recorded.

Registration closes Wednesday, March 1st at 6:30pm CST.
