Bee Clubs

There are a number of variations on the saying "Ask 10 different beekeepers a question and you are likely to get at least 20 different answers."

Belonging to a Bee Club is a great way to gain knowledge, share experiences with other beekeepers and hear some of those different answers.

Many bee clubs run introductory beekeeping courses, have a mentoring programme for support by more experienced beekeepers, may have guest speakers to speak on a range of topics, teach practical aspects of beekeeping as well as having club hives that are used to support this teaching. Meetings for most clubs are held regularly on a monthly basis.

To assist you to find your nearest bee club, we have compiled a list of the bee clubs that we are aware of, with meeting times and contact information.
