Welcome to the world of bees

This is the Website of the New Hanover County Beekeepers Association in Wilmington, NC. We're here for all those interested in beekeeping, our main purpose is to share information. Our Facebook page is where our members go to ask and get answers to their questions and keep in touch with fellow beekeepers. Please check out the information linked above or send us an email.Bee on coneflower

The NHCBA meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at the New Hanover County Arboretum, 6206 Oleander Dr. in Wilmington, N.C., unless otherwise announced.

Our Activities

Communication - our members participate on Facebook, listen in on all the activities, ask questions, get answers.

Education - we run a beginner's beekeeping class early in the year to get you started in this great hobby, sign up early as the classes fill up fast. See links on left for 2016.

Membership - our members share a close camaraderie in the beekeeping community and are able to expand their expertise and knowledge with constant contact. Won't you join us?

Outreach - we do “outreach” education at schools and clubs where we bring bee products and equipment and do a lecture w/honey tasting.

Facebook - one of the other ways we reach out to the community to share our knowledge and skills is by the use of the largest social network on the Internet. We'll maintain an active profile and respond to your queries and direct you to other resources for the beekeeper hobbyist. Won't you join us there also?
