what's the buzz

Join The Club!


At every meeting, we strive for an entertaining and fun evening, often with a special guest speaker. Topics are always current, engaging, and include new beekeeping developments. The evening concludes with a hint of bee politics and our ever-popular question/answer time.  There are sometimes additional activities (volunteer dependent), like coffee shop talks, pub nights and hands-on field days. Just one hands on field day is well worth the cost of membership.  Also membership supports the voice of the Cowichan Beekeepers Society to promote healthy environments and food security.
