So, we’ve been thinking about how we can help beekeepers all over the globe help eachother out and get connected.
We have a community forum here on this website with hundreds of members and posts, which is wonderful!
One great and easy way to get connected not only with the forum, but actually in person, is with this neat program below called “My Guest Map.”
Choose your location by zooming in, then just click near your house and it will let you add your information.
For Name: put your name
For Message: put what you are willing to do – i.e. Inspections, field visit, anything, etc…
For Link: put your email address so someone can get a hold of you.
For Photo: Upload a current photo of yourself so people know who you are.
Then click on one of the dorky icons on the bottom… That is what will show up on the map.
If you’re a newbie, offer to pay for their gas, or give the person helping you some honey or something.
If we all follow the golden rule, I think it could be awesome.
Don’t be a mooch. Give some, get some.
Let me know if you like this idea… It’s always great to have someone to help out.
I put my name up there if you are in the Maple Valley, WA area.
