Blue Mountains Beekeepers club was launched in November 2018 to support amateur beekeepers and encourage interest in honeybees and native bees in the region.
BMBK meets in the Workshop Room of the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre, Parkes Street, Katoomba (above Coles and opposite the BMCC Library).
We generally meet on the first Saturday of the month from 11am till about 2pm.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Our club offers new and experienced beekeepers, as well as bee enthusiasts, a chance to get together once a month to learn, share experiences and hear from a range of guest speakers.
Each monthly meeting aims to include a guest speaker, a general discussion session, beekeeping news, a question-and-answer session where we address problems encountered by our members, and a practical session where members get a chance to inspect our hives in the Cultural Centre garden and carry out seasonal beekeeping tasks.
Tea, coffee and snacks are available at the Cultural Centre Cafe. Or you can bring your own.
Beekeeping protective clothing is essential if you wish to get involved in opening the hives. Please bring your own.
Membership runs from 1 Jan till 31 Dec. Membership costs $20 plus a compulsory ABA Membership fee. Optional Public and Products Liability insurance is available to members for an additional fee.
