Welcome to the Christchurch Hobbyist Beekeepers' Club
Based in the beautiful Garden City
of Christchurch on the South Island of New Zealand, our club has over
160 active members and has been supporting local beekeepers for over
The purpose of our club is to support beekeeping in Christchurch, for
both professional and hobbyist beekeepers. Beekeeping is becoming ever
more popular and our club is here to help people learn about bees, how
to keep them and how to produce bee products. Of course, that includes
honey, one of the purest foods and the only food produced by insects.
Our club members include individuals and families and
we welcome contact from anyone with an interest in bees. It doesn't
matter if you just want to know more, if you think you might like to
become a beekeeper or if you already have some hives; our club is the
place for you.
We believe that the best way to learn is by doing!
We have a regular programme of Field Days where more experienced hive
masters demonstrate some of the skills and techniques used in beekeeping
today. Club members are encouraged to get involved and play an active
role, whether by helping to set up, lifting boxes of honey, lighting the
smokers or brewing the tea.
Although we are a volunteer organization, we have an elected Committee
with formal roles such as President, Secretary and Treasurer as you
would expect. All of our Committee members are volunteers and we
actively encourage every member to play an active role in making the
Club a success.
You will learn more about our Club and the
opportunities we offer as you travel through the rest of our website.
In the meantime, if you have any questions or feel that you would like
to know more about what the Club can do for you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Better still, come along to our next Field Day and have a taste of locally produced gold.
We look forwards to seeing you there!
