Find a Mentor (aka ‘Bee Buddies’)

There’s no substitute for wisdom, which is a great benefit that Members from our club can provide to newer beekeepers!

The list at the bottom of the page contains the name and contact information for those Members who have identified their interest in becoming a Mentor for others just getting started in the world of beekeeping.  These “bee buddies” live in various parts of our surrounding area, so finding one close to you should be simple.  They are ready to help guide you and answer your beekeeping questions.


Become a Mentor

Beekeeping and Mentorship go hand-in-hand. If you are a member who has skills, knowledge, and experience that you would like to share with newer beekeepers, consider becoming a Bee Buddy!  Please use the link below to complete your application.  Once received an reviewed by our Steering Committee, we’ll add you to the list below so new Members can find you.
