The purpose of Marlborough Beekeepers Association is to support the commercial operators and hobbyists who keep bees in Marlborough. The Marlborough Beekeepers Association (MBA) is run by volunteers who have an interest in sharing knowledge and skills or learning about bees. Activities are regularly organised by elected Committee members.

Beekeepers inspecting hives

We aim to help our members learn about the art and craft of beekeeping and to share that information with others so that they can become skilled beekeepers. The club welcomes new members, young and old, those new to beekeeping, or experienced hands. If you are interested in beekeeping, or want to get to know other local beekeepers then you are welcome to come along to our events. We look forward to seeing you there!

Upcoming Events

We hold workshops most months, usually on a Sunday afternoon. Practical hands-on sessions take place at the MBA hives on the NMIT Campus, off Budge Street, and we sometimes use other venues. Bad weather may mean that these events are cancelled, so please check our Facebook page for more up-to-date workshop details.

A longer term outlook of upcoming activities can be seen on our Calendar.
