Located in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia, we are proud to be one of the oldest beekeeping organizations in the state. We boast an active membership of over 140 Beekeepers of all experience levels, we average 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 different, seasonally relevant aspects 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.
If you are thinking about becoming a beekeeper or just interested in helping honeybees, please join us at one of our meetings which are always open to the public. If you're just curious about honey bees, our members have a wealth of information and experience that we are always 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. Stop in, share our passion for bees and nature, and enjoy some coffee and snacks. We look forward to seeing you!
