Durham County Beekeepers Association was formed by a small cluster of Durham beekeepers in 2011. This eager group began to share knowledge, collaborate, and grow.

We have a 10-hive apiary at the Duke Campus Farm, and there we give members and visitors alike a chance to observe and participate in beekeeping.

Meetings of the club take place every third Monday of the month at 7:00pm. Currently they are online via ZOOM, but we look forward to gathering again in person at the Sarah P Duke Gardens. Meetings are open to the public – no need to be a member.

Please join our DCBA Google group to participate in online discussions and obtain the Zoom links to our meetings.
