New to Beekeeping? Check Out Our Mobile Mentor Program
What is it?
VBA has secured a grant to help expand our educational and mentoring programs in a more formal way. This is our first year and we hope to offer this again if our members find it useful.
Classroom learning is great, and VBA has a fine in-hive education program at the Intervale, but what about looking in your own hives? It can be very confusing at first.
With this program, beekeepers of any experience level can contact the Mobile Mentors and request an in-hive apiary visit to help them with what they are seeing in their own hives. The Mobile Mentor will do a full inspection and talk you through any questions that you have.
The program is open to VBA members and complete details may be found here. (VBA Membership is required for program participation.)
