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 (social and question time until 7:00pm), when a special educational presentation begins. (In July we have picnic and hands-on Bee Day instead of the usual meeting. ) **No meeting in December. Meetings held 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.

VIRTUAL TUESDAY MARCH 31 MEETING!
Our March membership meeting will be an online virtual one to help members minimize potential exposure to the Covid-19 virus. We will NOT be meeting in person at the Jessie Mays Community Center. The TVBA Board is working on a plan to present a number of expert-led demonstrations most useful for this time of the year. We'll use our new website forum to answer questions and show how to install a purchased nucleus hive or package, do mite testing when alcohol is scarce, how to apply mite medications, how to make a colony split.
Look for more details in our March newsletter!
Be sure to register/renew as a TVBA member, as our newsletter and updates will soon be going only to our 2020 membership.
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.
