Membership of Portsmouth and District Beekeeping Association is open to all persons interested in beekeeping and any activities associated with beekeeping. You do not have to own any hives if you cannot or do not want to, or feel you are not experienced enough yet in managing bees, but will be welcome to join us at our monthly meetings, field days and beekeeping courses.
