Join us for an interactive, informative session!

We welcome beginners and encourage experienced beekeepers to share their knowledge, teach classes, mentor new beekeepers or volunteer to make an informal presentation at an upcoming meeting. Contact us! charlestonbees@gmail.com 

ccasionally our meeting location may change to enable us to gather together on-site at a local beeyard to inspect a hive or attend other meetings/conferences. Please visit our homepage "Upcoming Events" and  Calendar of Events to confirm the next meeting location, find directions, and review a list of our other upcoming events.
We encourage and welcome participation from all ages and for all levels of beekeepers as well as gardeners, educators, or others who are just interested in honeybees.
