Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.
I am interested in starting a hive in partnership with an experienced bee keeper. I have 3 acres in Old Town near the River. If anyone is interested, please contact me.
you might want to join ABQ Beekeepers first. There may be a beekeep who can mentor you from the group who lives in Old Town. Decide on what kind of hives you want, if you haven't already. Have those ready plus all of the required gear (smoker, hat/view etc). There are beekeepers who sell bees starting in early spring. Get on the list for a package of bees. Or you can sign up for a swarm on this site. Wes, the manager at Plants of the Southwest, has a couple of hives at the nursery. You could also ask him who manages his hives. He/she might be a good contact/mentor.
