BEEKIND Beekeeping Club

January 27 - November 17

Are you passionate about honey bees, beekeeping or protecting precious pollinators? Then join the sanctuary hive! The BEEKIND Beekeeping Club is a friendly and helpful community of new and experienced beekeepers created to support YOU. Engage with other like-minded apiarists, learn the latest “buzz” from the experts, and have fun every step of the way. Hive members also get special benefits including class savings, an official BEEKIND t-shirt, and monthly meetings with Master Beekeeper, Peter Ferreira.

Annual membership is $150 and includes monthly meetings featuring experts and highlighting new topics. Members also receive $15 off any of the sanctuary’s beekeeping classes and 10% off sanctuary shop items. The hive meets the last Thursday of every month in 2022 from January – November from 6:30-8:00pm.  Meetings will be held at the Newtown Community Center, 8 Simpson St, Newtown, CT and once weather permits we will meet at the sanctuary property.  Any changes to meeting location will be communicated via email to all members.

Kick-off meeting: January 27, 6:30 – 8:00 pm with guest speaker, James O’Neil from Honeybound Apiary. James will also be accepting pre-orders for 3-pound bee packages (nucleus colonies). If interested, each package costs $160 and must be paid in cash at the time of order.
