Nationally renowned beekeeper Michael Bush will be in Salem next month to educate locals on best practices for natural beekeeping. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 12, the Mark Twain Beekeepers will welcome Bush for a one-day workshop at the Dent County Community Center, located at 606 McGrath Lane in Salem.

The cost to attend is $35 per person or $60 per couple. The price of admission includes lunch.

Bush is the author of the “The Practical Beekeeper” and other texts on natural treatment-free beekeeping. His techniques have gained a nationwide following due in part to his active presence on beekeeping forums and information offered at his bushfarms.com website.

Seating for the event will be limited.
