Hello. My two daughters, 15 and 10, both received hive scholarships from the NE Kansas Beekeepers and the Kansas Honey Producers this year. Both hives were filled with 3 pound package bees (1 Italian and 1 Carniolan) in mid April and are doing great.
The kids are really liking it and mom and dad are pretty interested as well, but we have a ton to learn.
We do also have two local mentors which are a great!
This looks like a great place to get/share information!
