Check out our Facebook Page
We are a group of beekeepers from the Western Tidewater area of Virginia. Members are located in the Virginia counties of Isle of Wight and Surry; Gates county, North Carolina; and the Virginia cities of Chesapeake, Franklin, Portsmouth, and Suffolk.
Our goals are to provide a local resource
- to foster the keeping and efficient management of honey bees.
- to educate the members in the science and techniques of apiculture.
- to inform the public on the ecological and economic benefits of honey bee culture and the value of beekeepers to the community.
- to provide opportunities for informal exchanges of information through fellowship with other beekeepers.
- to maintain a connection with the larger network of organized beekeepers.
Meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of each month , from 6:30 PM to 9 PM, in the Fellowship Hall of Oakland Christian Church, 5641 Godwin Blvd, Suffolk, VA 23432. (For directions click HERE.) Come out and join us!
