EMBA PROGRAMS

Monthly programs are tailored to the needs of our membership and focus on key elements of beekeeping as well as trying to understand and manage what is going on in our hives at different times of the year. Our club maintains its own hives for hands-on demonstrations and workshops where members can get practical experience. EMBA provides many opportunities for members to network with other beekeepers and learn how other are handling similar challenges within their hives.

EMBA WORKSHOPS

EMBA offers workshops by national experts to help both beginners and experienced beekeepers. The club provides access to quality bees and hive equipment, as well as hands-on workshops where beginners can assemble their new hive and have it ready for the season, taking all of the guess work out of the process.


Club meetings are open to the public. Please come by and check out what we’re all about!
