Welcome to the pages of the Canterbury Beekeepers, a branch of the Kent Beekeepers’ Association. Have a look around the site to learn more about us. We exist for all those who are interested in Beekeeping, honey and other products from the hive. We have members in Canterbury and the surrounding East Kent Area including the Elham Valley. Some of us have just one hive, others have dozens.
We welcome new members – if you are interested and you want to learn more about beekeeping visit one of our indoor or outdoor meetings, or read more at our getting started page. We are always willing to talk to prospective beekeepers, and you should contact us first via this page.
Our apiary meetings, and meet-the-public events can be found on the events page.
Starting at the end of February 2019, Dougal will be teaching a Beginner’s Course of seven (roughly two-hour) classroom sessions plus a small-group, meet-the-bees practical session. The weekly classroom sessions will be at The Drum Inn, close to M20 Junction 11 and can be on either Sunday afternoons or Wednesday evenings.
For more details or to express your interest, contact Dougal now via the contact form (select beginner courses).
