TVBA is a non-profit organization that provides community, advocacy, and education for those interested in raising honey bees and supporting their presence in the environment.
TVBA members meet monthly on the last Tuesday of the month at 6:00PM. There is social and question time, plus a special educational presentation. (In July we have picnic and hands-on Bee Day instead of the usual meeting. ) **No meeting in December. Meetings held online while the Covid pandemic holds sway, in normal times meetings are at at Jessie Mays Community Center in North Plains.
Annual membership in TVBA costs $20 per household and goes from January 1 through December 31. Benefits include our monthly newsletter, access to meetings and to the Honey House, our fully-equipped honey extraction facility.
The TVBA Honey House is a fabulous community asset we maintain. Extraction equipment is available to all members, normally from mid-July through Labor Day. We have manual extractors available to check out for short-term use year-round as well.
Signups later in 2022.
