Welcome to the Basingstoke & District Beekeepers’ Association
On our site, we hope to share with you our enthusiasm and passion for honey bees, in the hope that one day you too might be a member!
We now understand the vital role honey bees play in our ecosystem, providing far more than just their most famous sweet creation. We aim to further this understanding through the craft of beekeeping, educating and training beekeepers to improve bee health.
Our mission is to support the honey bee in our corner of the world, from providing a network of support and best practice for our members in the Basingstoke and surrounding areas, to events where we bring beekeeping to the general public to learn more, not to mention sample the end products!
Want to learn more about honey bees?
We run several public events during the year – check out our Calendar to see if there are any coming soon, and visit the Public Information section to learn about the honey bee and other related species.
Would you like to be a beekeeper?
We run a very popular annual course, starting early each year and running for several months. Find out more about our beekeeping course.
