I started ZuniBee.com as another resource to help educate current and prospective beekepers.
ZuniBee Farms is a brand new, 2007, start up apiary. We have been reading as many books as possible to absorb as much information we can. Yes, we are hooked! While there are many great websites and forums with outstanding information, we noticed a void of actual personal videos to learn from. There are many videos on YouTube Â® but sorting through all the other results makes things difficult. Plus, the comments left are often not from beekeepers who can further enhance the learning process by adding comments from their experience. Learning by watching is much easier than trying to only visualize a concept in a book. I envision ZuniBee being a place where members can upload their videos (even camera phone videos) and get comments on whats right and whats wrong so they can improve.
By providing a site for beekeepers to share videos, members will be able to see tasks they have only read about - in action! They can comment, provide guidance, and opinions on what is seen. BeeKeepers can keep private video logs (vlogs) and have fun sharing their videos with the world.
ZuniBee.com is FREE, has no advertising, and is not being operated to make money. It is a service paid for by ZuniBee Farms as our contribution to the beekeeping community.
The site is not a forum and when you log in as a member you will even see a direct link to this forum to make it easy to get to after watching a video!
Please help spread the word and most of all, enjoy your experience on ZuniBee.com!
