New Beekeeper? Help is Here!

VBA has secured a grant to help expand our educational and mentoring programs!  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.

On the Fence about Joining VBA?  Contact one of the Mobile Mentors and talk to them before you decide (you'll need to join VBA to participate).
