This month on “Agri Arkansas,” take a closer look at the Arkansas State Plant Board, visit Brothers Honey Co. of Faulkner County and learn how to grow garlic with Little Rock Urban Farming in a new episode Thursday, Oct. 26, at 6:30 p.m.


The October episode of “Agri Arkansas” begins by examining the work of the Arkansas State Plant Board. Created to protect and serve Arkansans and the agricultural and business communities, the Arkansas State Plant Board is charged with providing information and unbiased enforcement of laws and regulations across The Natural State.


In the next segment, we’ll get to know a Faulkner County honey operation. As we visit with the Opris family we’ll see how will learn how a number of honey-producing beehives the family rescued several years prior have helped to produce a thriving business: Brothers Honey Co.


We’ll also get a garlic growing demonstration in a special, instructive segment. Chris Hiryak of Little Rock Urban Farming lets us stop in to see a demonstration of just how simple the steps necessary to grow great garlic are.

To round out the episode, Terry Walker, Arkansas State Plant Board director, and Elvis Opris of Brothers Honey Co. will join a panel discussion led by host Tony Brooks.

See it all in another celebration of agriculture in Arkansas Thursday, Oct. 26, at 6:30 p.m.
