Hello and Welcome!
I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a great site to learn more about bees and beekeeping. Be sure to check out the tutorials on the main Beemaster page.
I also encourage you to get involved with a local beekeeping club. Clubs are good places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers. Plus, they often offer beginning beekeeping classes:http://www.gabeekeeping.com/local_clubs.html
