Meetings: We alternate months between Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings; see for scheduled dates and locations. BGES has active members who keep bees from the Maryland line south to the tip of the Eastern Shore in the heart of Virginia’s vegetable farmland.

*We will hold a two-session basic beekeeping course on February 9 and 16 from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM at the Chamber of Commerce, Melfa, VA
Our yearly dues are $20 for local plus $10 for State. We teach some bee topic at every meeting.
