18yo Beekeeper Wanting Experience

Hey! I’m a new 18 year old in the beekeeping community and just wanting some help!
I’ve been reading heaps of books about bee-care and beekeeping and i’m able to apply for registration to have a hive! I was just wondering if any of the beekeepers in the inner north would be willing to take me around their apiaries. Just want some more hands-on experience (and supervision). Let me know if you’re interested! Thank you in advance.

Greetings Ben,

Welcome to the world of bees. I suggest joining the local club and volunteering in the apiary. The monthly meeting is also a good place to meet people and find a mentor that will meet your style of beekeeping. They also have a good beeginner’s class that has a good deal of class time working with bees.
