Greetings from Hunter NY
« on: September 01, 2009, 09:08:37 PM »
New to the whole world of bee keeping, I recently got into making Mead (honey wine) and thought maybe a logical next step would be getting into beekeeping, i wont be starting for a few months, now that its getting cold. So i hope to pick some brains between now and april/may-ish to learn all i can.

I have many passions in life, i love painting, writing poetry and short stories, playing and writing music. Love watching movies and reading. Big wine drinker, and that lead to mead which lead me here.

Welcome Gravel,

I'm over by the Ashokan reservoir so we are almost like neighbors :-D  Glad to have you stop by and I'm sure you will find it a great place to learn.

Hello and Welcome!

This forum is great place to learn more about bees and beekeeping. Be sure to check out the tutorials on the main Beemaster page, and check your local library for books & videos on beekeeping. Also, get involved with a local beekeeping club:
Clubs often offer beginning beekeeping classes, and are good places to find mentors and get connected with local beekeepers.

Lastly, don't forget to update your profile with your location. Much of beekeeping is location specific, so knowing where you are will help us answer your questions.
