Mentorship Program

The Mentorship Program is an opportunity to learn about apiculture (raising bees) by helping experienced bee keepers work with bees in the neighborhood hives of the Host-a-Hive program.  You will learn the skills you’ll need to be a successful, independent beekeeper.  Volunteers should be in good health and have the ability to lift 50 pounds – honey can be surprisingly heavy.  Program cost is $300, trainee supplies own Langstroth hive if necessary.
