Membership in Greater Cleveland Beekeepers Association means you can learn and enjoy a new hobby, keep current with beekeeping, and meet other beekeeping members who live in the Greater Cleveland area. Beekeeping has changed greatly in the past 20 years, and if beekeepers do not have a resource to rely on they can be left behind on current events, new products, and changes in Apiary Management.
GCBA is one of the larger beekeeping clubs in the State of Ohio with more than 150 registered members annually. GCBA has developed a close working relationship with the Cuyahoga County Fair and is involved with many public education programs.
Beekeeper education is the focus and mission of GCBA. An annual conference and field day is held. The day-long event is dedicated to teaching beginner and advanced practices of hive management and pollinator health.
An annual beginner beekeeping course is taught at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds, Building 25. You can find more information under Events.
GCBA monthly meetings are focused on educational topics including beekeeping best management practices, current events in beekeeping, research, and hive health. They are open to the public. Membership is not required.
