I need some help with composting and gardening for a couple of hours a week, every week. A couple of UNM kids have come by, but it's been very inconsistent and I need this to be weekly!  Paying gig.  Sunday mornings are probably best as it's not too hot and we can get into the hive for a few minutes too, but there's a lot of flexibility.  No need to be experienced in anything; I just can't stand for long stretches of time so need this regular help cleaning around the yard, watering, turning the…See More

Hello, Elizabeth,

  Thank you for the personal invitation to the Beeks meeting. It's a maybe. I have 7 horses that must be fed and stalled or they whine that I'm being so mean to starve them. Plus, and I hate to admit it, I really don't like driving at night anymore.  sigh   I'll see if someone I know who lives down here in the valley could give me a ride.

Sorry for the slow response. I am a California native going to school in Bar Harbor, ME., but scouting for internships all over the country because I want to live in a new place for the summer.

Sure. I can probably use all the help I can get. If you are referring to the cut out Ben set up then I am hoping to do it this Wed afternoon/evening. I am still fairly new to beekeeping but not new to construction & contracting.
