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.
