Located in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia, we are proud to be the largest local beekeepers organization in the state. We boast an active membership of over 200, averaging around 80 members at each club meeting. We strive to work together to become better stewards of the honey bees we keep as well as inform the public about the importance of this wondrous little creature. To do this, we meet monthly and host a guest speaker to educate the group about some aspect of beekeeping. We also volunteer at numerous community events throughout the year to reach out and teach the public about the importance of honeybees in all of our lives.
The public is invited to attend our monthly meetings. These are generally held on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Towne Hall wing of Towne Bank, 137 Mt. Pleasant Rd. Chesapeake, Virginia 23322.
If you are thinking about becoming a beekeeper or just interested in honeybees, please join us at one of our meetings. If you're just interested about bees (school project?) our members have a wealth of information and experience to share. If you're thinking about becoming a beekeeper, come to the meeting and find a mentor. It's never too early to get hands-on experience by apprenticing under an experienced local beekeeper. We represent all the areas of Hampton Roads, so you're guaranteed to find a mentor close to you! Stop in, share our passion for bees and nature, and enjoy some coffee and homemade snacks. We look forward to seeing you!
