A NewBEE is a military veteran interested in learning about beekeeping. During the first year, a NewBEE will be partnered with a local area mentor in order to learn basic beekeeping skills.
A NewBEE is expected to be respectful, have a positive attitude, and to be coachable while following the directions and instructions of their assigned mentor. Each relationship will differ based on experience, personality, and schedule availability.
As with any new endeavor, BEE prepared to invest in yourself and your equipment.
