Hi there from an absolute beginner
I have a fascination with bees and would like to learn more about keeping a hive or two and also developing habitat for bees on my property. I have 1.5 acres with half of it in fruit/avacado trees. My property backs up to a large wash and wilderness which I think would be ideal for bees. I'm looking forward to meeting you all through your posts and learning from your experiences. Any one know of any teaching groups/associations here in or near western San Bernardino County?
Thanks for a reply
phx :)

Have you run across the Backward Beekeepers? They have a great blog, and are all southern Californians. They have a fun, informative blog.

Dan -- I think the California Rare Fruit Growers' Association says that avocados grow in the Bay Area. But I think they're tricky, getting huge and needing specific other avocados for pollenation.

I'm originally from Maryland so I could be spewing ill-informed nonsense.
