Request a Mentor
The purpose of the WCABA Mentor/Mentee program is to pair beekeepers who would like some "help", with beekeepers who would like to share their knowledge. Anyone can be a mentor, a mentee or both.
The WCABA covers a large area, so part of the process will be to try to pair people who live close to each other, to make it convenient for mentors.
Many times a question can be answered with a phone conversation. Phone and/or online discussion is the first option and travel is the second.
It is sometimes helpful to take a picture of your hive problem and have it ready to show...
While there is no cost to work with a mentor, an offer to help with
out-of-pocket costs, like travel, if distance is a factor, would be appreciated.
"Contact us" to place your request for a mentor. We currently have a very small number of mentors. Once your request is received it will be sent to our mentor group. As soon as possible, one of our mentors will contact you.
