Hive Buddy Mentorships

Beekeeping can be daunting and confusing, especially when you just start out.


Hive Buddy mentorships are meant to feel like you have a close friend near you when you need it. Our mentors have been carefully selected for variety of personality combined with different experiences and areas of interest. No two mentors are the same but they all have the ability to bring competence and confidence to you and your beekeeping. 

Our mentorships are designed to run over three months and they follow the seasons.

Cohorts start on 1st September, 1st of December, 1st of March and 1st of June.

How does it work?

The mentorships are a group of between 10-25 beekeepers that are lead by a Hive Buddy mentor. The mentor groups meet online approximately every two weeks usually to discuss seasonal matters and support the curiosity of the mentees. Additionally, each mentor group has a special, private online community within Hive Buddy that allows the group to stay connected and support each other through their journey. This is curated and supported by your mentor.

Whilst many of our mentorships are designed to support new beekeepers within their first few years of beekeeping, there are some mentors offering advanced and technical mentorship programs for those ready to take the next step.
