New from Cary, NC
« on: December 16, 2008, 10:51:38 AM »
I moved to Cary, NC this year and bought a house. I have already added raised garden beds, planted 15 fruit trees and still have blueberry and blackberry bushes to put in the ground. A neighbor has a warre hive and that gave me the idea of getting some bees for myself. I do not have any hives yet, but I am interested in getting 1-2 next year to help pollinate everything.

Welcome to the forum!

This is a great place to learn more about bees & beekeeping. The tutorials on the main Beemaster page were among the first things I read when I became interested in beekeeping several years ago. I also use the 'search' function a lot: many times I find that I can get an immediate answer to my question in previous threads. Lastly, I recommend getting involved with a local beekeeping club. Clubs are good places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers. Plus, clubs often offer beginning beekeeping classes. There are a number of local clubs in North Carolina:
