Welcome to the Kingston Beekeepers Association (also known as the KBKA).
We support beekeeping, local biodiversity and conservation in the Kingston area. We also raise awareness of honey bees and how important they are to the world around us. Read more about our values and community activities.
We’re a teaching apiary and offer introductory taster sessions, beginner and intermediate courses. We are happy to say Beekeeper training is now back on the agenda, you can see examples of our courses or contact us to find out more.
We also welcome experienced beekeepers to join the KBKA and share their knowledge with other members.
We are a local charity, a sub-division of Surrey Beekeeping Association. If you’d like to make a donation to Kingston Beekeepers please contact our Treasurer firstname.lastname@example.org for options.
Our 2022 apiary honey is no longer available!
There is a team of experienced and knowledgeable beekeepers who are able to give talks/lectures to schools, young people’s groups, clubs, associations etc. on the following topics:
- The life cycle of bees
- The environmental importance of insect pollinators
- The factors endangering the survival bees
- What can be done to ensure the survival of bees and insects in general
- Bees and honey through the ages
During the summer months an observation hive can be displayed, as well as honey tasting and candle rolling.
