For CMBA Members: Hands-on Learning
The CMBA Nuc Team is open to volunteers. The Nuc Team supports the CMBA nucleus hive program and affords an opportunity for both experienced beekeepers and “newbees” to gain hands-on management experience quickly. This is an on-going program. We request continuity for a season. Please write requesting more information on the CMBA Nuc Team if you are interested.
