I’ve been reading and watching videos for about a year but would like to get some hands on local experience/mentoring before buying or starting a bee hive in the Spring of 2021. Where can I start? Who can I talk to?
Like GG said, local mentors are the way to go. You can find a LOT of great info here, but you have to be weary. An experienced local will get you where you need to be. Also, many clubs have a bee school in the spring for less than $100. The material I learned at the school was good, but most importantly, I came out of the course with 3 local mentors‘ phone numbers (combined experience well over 100 years), and a nuc on order.
