We strongly believe that proper maintenance will create favorable conditions for our honey bees. Keeping our apiaries structure strong and 'homey' is key to promoting healthy honey harvests; and will help prevent the insects from absconding.
The Association's meetings are held to enable members to contribute to the upkeep of apiaries and for beginners to gain hands-on experience from senior beekeepers. Whatever your bee skill level we welcome you to join us!
The Association does not accept any responsibility or liability for any loss, damage or injury to members or visitors arising from their presence at the Apiary. Members and visitors are responsible for their own safety and they should ensure that they are suitably attired.
