FLBC Mentorship Program 2015

E-mail Print PDF

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.

If you sell, or want to sell, your honey to others to read this June 2014 publication from Cooperative Extension (pdf file). It answers many questions about processing, licensing, and labeling that you may have.

All of the bee package orders the club facilitates for its members have been purchased.  Keep an eye on this space for updates.  If you need to buy bees, we have compiled a list of suppliers.

Packages are slated to arrive on or around May 9. Be ready to hive your bees that weekend -- you don't want to leave them in the packages!
