Our guest speaker for the month of May is Charles Bennett. Charles is the current Vice President of the WSBA (Washington State Bee Keeper Association) and past President of of PNWQRC (Pacific NW Queen Rearing Club).
Charles grew up in rural Clackamas County, Oregon. After six years in the Air Force, Charles finished his higher education at Warner Pacific College in Portland, Oregon, earning a BS degree in Business.
Charles retired from financial planning in 2007 and was in search of something to keep him busy. He received his first hive of bees from a swarm and the rest is history!
Charles is the coordinator of his farm and an informative program about honeybees for children of all ages at schools and meeting places around Oregon and Washington. Charles may be contacted for speaking engagements by mail at, 8701 NE 159th Street, Battle Ground, WA 98604 or by phone 360 200-3093.
