Kaskaskia College Community and Continuing Education are offering four classes, beginning January 25, on the art of beekeeping led by master beekeeper and adjunct instructor Terry Combs. All four courses are available via Kaskaskia College’s distance learning program, with broadcasts available at the Salem, Trenton, Vandalia, Nashville, and Greenville education centers.

Combs resides in Keyesport and keeps bees within Bond County. His specialty is varietal honey, which has earned him many competitive ribbons, including first place at the 2012 Illinois State Fair (Springfield) and the 2017 Illinois State Fair (DuQuoin).
