Tidewater Beekeepers Association

Adopt a Hive

You don't have to become a beekeeper to help the bees, why not become a bee sponsor!

When you adopt a hive, the funds will be used to make sure your bees are well protected from the many hazards they face, educate new beekeepers and educate the public about honey bees.

The adopt a hive program provides the necessary hive components to build a home for honey bees. Your donations will provide the components to build and maintain a hive at the TBA bee yard and provide beekeeper training to new beekeepers who join our club or take our beekeeping classes. These hives will also provide education to the public at the many events we are invited to throughout the year by Schools, Scout troops, Garden clubs and Businesses in our area. We hope to eventually be able to expand this program into funding research to help save the honey bee as well as many other programs focused on honey bee conservation and with your help this will all be possible.

Plus, you will receive all these benefits

  • We'll put your name on a plaque in the bee yard, and we'll email you a photo of your hive.
  • You'll receive an official hive adoption certificate. (This is not physical ownership of the hive)
  • You will have the opportunity to enter the contest to Name your Queen. (read sponsorship levels)
  • You will have the opportunity (if local) to paint or decorate your hive body (read sponsorship levels)
  • You will be honored as a sponsor of the month on our website.
  • You may receive honey produced by your very own hive. (read sponsorship levels)
