Beginning Beekeeper Classes 2014
Our monthly meetings are open to the public and are free to attend. We often have guest speakers at our meetings that cover a wide range of topics. They are held at 7pm the second Monday of every month at the Canandaigua VA Medical Center, Building 5 Auditorium, 400 Fort Hill Avenue Canandaigua, NY 14424. Club officers meet prior to the meeting to review club business, this is open to the general membership. All presenters and announcements must meet with club officers 15 minutes prior to the start of the meeting to review their message and approve it.
OFLBA Mentors Needed
The goal of these expectations is to show what is expected of the mentors as a minimum. These are guidelines for the mentors to follow to ensure the new beekeeper is support at least 1 full year of beekeeping. By following these guidelines, both the mentor and the beginner will have the same expectations and as a result should eliminate any issues with regards what the OFLBA, the Mentor and the beginner beekeeper expect of each other.
