Under normal circumstances, we'd love to have you attend one of our meetings.

Then, if you like what you see, we invite you to become a member.

Now you're going to have to take our word for it - becoming a GBA member comes with a lot of benefits!

Here’s some of the exciting things coming for our members in 2022:

  • In person meetings, COVID allowing. It will be great to see each other in person!
  • Expanded classes. We have a four course series “Getting Through the First Year”, and a free, introductory “Becoming a Beekeeper” classes. See below for more details.
  • Social Hive Dives. We meet at a member’s apiary, work with the bees, and hang out and share some food and drink. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions and get some hands-on experience. See the Calendar for more information.
  • Nucs. We plan on selling a limited number of Nucs to club members. This will be an easy way to get a healthy, established colony at a good price.
  • Mentor Program. We will continue the Mentor program started last year. Have an issue with your hives, or unsure about what to do next? Reach out to the club and schedule a Mentor visit.

Annual membership applications can now be submitted using the online form below.
