Local Bee Meetings in Western North Carolina


One of the best ways to have a successful bee yard is to get involved in your beekeeping community. Find your local beekeepers, go to the meetings, chat about seasonal blooms, troubleshoot common problems, and learn a lot, all while getting to know your neighbors.

North Carolina State Beekeepers Association


The NCSBA is a volunteer-led organization comprised of more than four thousand active members, almost all of which are hobbyist beekeepers that are also members of a network of local beekeeping associations. These local associations are chartered by the NCSBA and serve to help their members learn and enjoy the practice of keeping bees.
