We need your help!!
We are in search of enthusiastic members who are willing to donate some of their time and energy to help us spread the good news about bees and all things bee related. We are in specific need of folks who are willing to write articles for the local papers and / or provide nice high resolution photos of their bees doing ‘bee things.’ We also need help spreading the good word about bees at the many local events (McDonalds Nursery Outdoor Show, Hampton Master Gardeners plant sales at Bluebird Gap Farm for example) that the CBA attends.
Why not rear your own queens? The Colonial Beekeepers Queen Rearing course introduces methods of rearing queens that work consistently for beekeepers wanting a few back up queens, queens for nucs or many queens for assisting others with their queen needs. Seating is limited to make your plans to attend now. Registration information is listed below.
We are a group of beekeepers from the Peninsula and Middle Peninsula areas of Virginia. Members range from as far south as Hampton, to as far north as Middlesex, to as far east as Mathews and all points between. Our purposes are many:
*Enjoying the wonders of nature
*Fostering the keeping, efficient management, and preservation of honey bees
*Providing pollination for local agriculture
*Informing members and our communities of the ecological and economic benefits of honey bees
*Educating members in the science and techniques of apiculture (Being "beekeepers" and not "bee-havers")
Regular meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of each month, from 7 PM to 9 PM, in the Fellowship Hall of St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Yorktown, VA.
