We are now opening the 2015 FLBC mentorship program applications.
For this program to work, we need mentors!
If you have kept bees for three or more years, please consider helping out a new beekeeper. You do NOT need to have all of the answers -- we have a cadre of "mentors for mentors" if you run into a situation that's new to you, or beyond your skill set. (And then hey -- you learn something new too!) Most beekeepers starting out just need an extra boost of confidence, or some simple guidance for basic beekeeping tasks -- and you can provide that.
We will do our best to match up folks by geography. We may not always succeed, depending on your location, your hive type (Langstroth beekeepers may not have top bar hive experience), and demand.
If you would like to participate, please fill out this short survey. We are using this form to collect the right data for me to match up folks so that the program -- and your beekeeping -- succeeds.
