About US

The NHC Beekeepers Association was founded in the fall of 2010 by a group of like-minded and passionate beekeepers wanting to centralize our resources and expertise and share the knowledge and experience with others.

Our Activities

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

Education – the club offers a 6-week Beginning Beekeeping School each January

Membership – our members share a close camaraderie in the beekeeping community and are able to expand their expertise and knowledge with constant contact. 

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?
