We are obviously in a unique time in history. Facebook will be a great resource for new beeks to get started with your bees and for “old” beeks who have a problem they need to solve.
Experienced beekeepers – please share your experience and knowledge via Facebook or make arrangements to share via phone or text. We all know how nervous people can get when starting beekeeping and to do so without hands-on help is even harder.
If you are an experienced beekeeper and are willing to help via telephone contact, please reply to the FB post that you are willing so others can message you and make further contact arrangements from there as needed.
We know that not everyone is on FB. If you are not on FB but are willing to help, please fill out the mentor form found under the MEMBERS tab at https://warrencountyohiobeekeepers.org/members/mentoring/
Bee kind and bee generous as much as you can while staying within the current guidelines of social distancing.
The next WCOB club meeting is planned for June 14th. Please watch FB or our website for updates.
Our web has a slightly new web address: warrencountyohiobeekeepers.org
