    Welcome to Beesource!

    You may want to look into a local beekeeping club. It appears that this one:
    http://mvbee.org/
    is fairly close to you.

    The New Hampshire Beekeepers Association is having a meeting March 16, 2013. They usually meet quite close to Concord. http://www.nhbeekeepers.org/index.htm

    Hi Spencer11,
    Glad to hear you are interested in starting beekeeping. I'm up the road a bit in Sutton so we are almost neighbors.

    Radar is right, join a club or two. Ours is the Kearsarge Beekeepers Association, http://kbanh.wordpress.com/ and you would be welcome to join.

    You should read as much as you can, listen to podcasts and find a mentor in a club if you can. You can also learn lots from this forum and others.

    We are having a bee school right now and are half way through it. I bet you could get into the last two classes if you called the contact person on our website.

    The NH Beekeepers, http://www.nhbeekeepers.org/NHBeeSchools.html, site lists some other schools that are going on this year also. Maybe you could get into one of them.

    Good luck to you,
    John

    You can also check out "Imagine That Honey" on facebook. Jodi has classes at her house in Keene, they're once a month from February to September...I learned a lot from her!
