The Richmond Beekeepers Association is dedicated to the preservation of the art and science of beekeeping.  Established in 1949, it is the oldest beekeeping association in the Richmond Virginia area.  Members often share their knowledge and love of honeybees by presenting programs to interested groups.  If you are thinking of becoming a beekeeper, RBA will provide a valuable resource of experienced keepers who are always willing to share their knowledge.  Monthly programs will help you gain the knowledge you will need to keep your bees healthy and happy. If you are already a beekeeper, the association can give you a community of people who share you interest.

    Looking for a guest speaker to talk for 45 minutes to an hour on Tuesday Sept. 30th to a group of homeschoolers in Ashland. It’s a group of about 25 young people (K-5th grade) who are doing an insect unit and would love to hear about the how-to’s and why’s of beekeeping, the importance of pollinators, impact of pesticides, really anything the speaker is passionate about. The class meets from 12:30-2:30 and the speaker could choose when to come during that block. Thank you for considering helping (and inspiring) us!
