The Georgia Mountain Beekeepers Association was founded in 1994, as a non-profit organization, providing membership with a forum for sharing knowledge and mutual interest in beekeeping, as well as educate and promote the benefits of beekeeping to the general public. Joining a beekeepers club is a great way to learn more about beekeeping, get answers to questions you may have and be with people with the same interest.
