Beekeepers Club of Gwinnett County

If you are seriously interested in beekeeping and starting a couple hives, now is the time to be learning all you can, looking for a short course (some more info below), getting your equipment ready and ordering bees! 

If you are interested in finding a mentor or becoming a mentor, please contact us. Beekeeping is a fascinating hobby and we can all benefit and learn from each other through mentoring! 

Looking for a mentor?

Let us know if you would like someone to visit your hive or if you only want to talk with an experienced beekeeper.  Be sure to provide us with contact information and your general location so we can get back to you.  And of course come to our meetings where there are always people ready to talk about bees!

Interested in mentoring new beekeepers?

Let us know and we will work with you to get you added to the program as a mentor.
