CCBA Mentor Program

As we begin this new years 2023 Beekeeping Class, we are looking for folks to step up and be mentors to this new class of beekeepers. You don't need years and years of experience to be a mentor to a new beekeeper. Actually a lot of people start mentoring in their second year. Remember you have been through it and can answer those questions about installing a package and when do I add that second box. If you don't know the answer to something you still have your mentor to fall back on.

Please complete this form if you are interested in helping out one of the new beekeepers in this 2022 class!
