Why we do what we do

We believe every beekeeper — regardless of how much money they make, where they live or where they come from — deserves mentorship to find their footing in beekeeping. We all win when new beekeepers have the support they need to succeed and keep bees responsibly.

Can you chip in?

If you believe every beekeeper deserves mentorship too and you like what we do, support our efforts. When you support Backyard Beekeeping, you help us grow our library of resources and invest back in the community of backyard beekeepers.
