I met and mingled and gathered all sorts of good information from people who had been in the industry for years and who didn't mind sharing their experiences with a "new-bee". I found a member who mentored me and helped me through those rough first years. (Thanks Sig) My hope is that everyone who joins will feel welcome, network with some great folks...and most importantly continue to enjoy and love the art of beekeeping!”
