The Nansemond Beekeepers Association (NBA) provides its membership with a forum for sharing knowledge in beekeeping, and is dedicated to educating and promoting the benefits of beekeeping to the public.

Joining a beekeeping club is a great way to learn more about beekeeping, get answers to all those questions you have, meet other folks with similar interests, and save costs by consolidating orders for equipment.

Come by to one of our monthly meetings, learn something about beekeeping and decide if beekeeping is for you. We welcome your membership.

Many of our members also belong to other beekeeping organizations in the Tidewater area.  We share training, environmental concerns, and fellowship.  Other groups include:
