Welcome to Metro Beekeepers.
The Metro Beekeepers Association (“MBA”) is organized to educate its members, and the general public of the importance of bees to horticulture and the environment. We provide education about the best methods of beekeeping and honey production. We promote beekeeping in urban areas, as well as, attracting and training future beekeepers in the science, and craft of beekeeping.
Membership is open to the public and consists primarily of amateur beekeepers and others not professionally connected with beekeeping or commercial honey production. General Member meetings are currently held online on the 2nd Tuesdays of each month at 7:00 pm, with a Q&A session starting at 6:30 pm. Links to the zoom meetings will be posted on both our Facebook and Events page.
