Welcome to BVBeeks!

The Brazos Valley Beekeepers Association was formed in May 2014 as a club of hobbyist beekeepers in and around the Bryan/College Station area.  We welcome everyone to join our monthly meetings, which are usually held the 3rd Tuesday of every month. Check the club calendar for upcoming events and activities.

Honey Extraction Demo & Potluck Month!!!
Our June meeting will feature honey extraction demo, with details and tips as well as Nutrition and  Dearth Management.

We will also have our quarterly POTLUCK!  Bring your favorite dish to share along with your beverage!  Please sign up for the potluck at this google sheet link:

Denise Mann has volunteered to spearhead an adult apprenticeship program within the club.  Watch for more details, but for now, experienced beekeepers will be asked to post times when they will be in their hives and welcome those less experienced to join them to the Club Facebook Group.  If you use facebook, but haven't joined our group, this may be the reason you were waiting for.  Also, she has created a "GroupMe text messaging group" for both apprentices as well as experienced beekeepers to help coordinate learning opportunities.  Be sure to contact Denise at communications@bvbeeks.org if you would like to be added to the GroupMe group.

 

Update: the equipment@bvbeeks.org email address has been updated and now works again.  If you would like to check-out one of the club owned extractors, you can send an email to this address to book your reservation.
