I'm new to the forum and new to bee keeping :)
I have 2 hives which have been going strong for 3 weeks now, almost ready to put the second box onto. I am really enjoying this hobby and already love my bees. The more I learn about the bees the more I love them, such interesting and complex little creatures.
In other areas of my life I am an absolute horse nut and own two quarter horses, a 15 year old mare and a 2 year old filly. I do low level dressage and jumping mostly, as well as trails and a bit of everything else.
My day job is as a mental health support worker for high needs clients with moderate to severe mental health issues. It's a great job, with highs and lows, it is wonderful helping people moving along their recovery journeys.
I also volunteer as a youth mentor. Other interests include reading, health and fitness, nature, sustainable agriculture, science, aussie rules, cricket and cooking.
Nice to be here, can't wait to have a look around :)
