The Southland Bee Society (SBS) is a non-profit organisation for people interested in bees, established in early 2015. Majority of us are hobbyist beekeepers, but our membership includes everyone from hobbyists to commercial and those simply fascinated by bees. 

Our aim is simple. We want to raise awareness about bees and their role in the environment, provide education and support for amateur beekeepers and advocate for best care practice in New Zealand.

The SBS welcomes new members, young and old, those new to beekeeping, or experienced hands. If you are interested in beekeeping, or want to get to know other local beekeepers then you are welcome to come along to our events. We meet every third Wednesday of the month, please see events for full details. We look forward to seeing you there!
