****2016 BONS MEETING LOCATION****

Welcome to the Beekeepers of the Northern Shenandoah (BONS) website. We are a group of beekeepers in the western and northern area of Virginia. Our educational meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of each month at the Grace Community Church at 2333 Roosevelt Blvd, Winchester, VA 22601.

The meetings usually start with a short business report (the business meeting is held separate from the educational meeting) then we have a topic presented by an experienced beekeeper on issues of managing beehives. The club sponsors beginning beekeeping classes each year, can provide a scholarship for young beekeepers, participates in local events related to bees, helps new beekeepers extract honey and is connected with the Virginia State Beekeepers Association.
