Welcome

Greene County Beekeepers Association members are hobbyists or full-time beekeepers who are dedicated to the care and future of honeybees in and around Greene County, Ohio.  Some of our members are just getting started as beekeepers, and some have enjoyed their apiaries for decades!  All share an interest in the wonderful and remarkable world of apis mellifera.

Our goal is to promote the world of honeybees and apicultural activities.  We invite anyone interested in learning more about bees and beekeeping to come to our next meeting or event and join our organization.  If you have any questions, or just want more information, please contact GCBA.
