Community Apiary Days

Community apiary days are typically held every other weekend on Saturdays or Sundays depending on weather and temperature from March to October.

Community Outreach/Public Speaking

PCBA has several members who are happy to come out to local schools and clubs to discuss bees.  We also attend various events within the county and surrounding area to promote bees and pollinators.

NCSBA & Other Similar Conferences

Every year PCBA encourages its members to attend a variety of state and national conferences.  We also offer scholarships whenever possible to give our members the most opportunity to attend.  This year many of these conferences have moved to online Zoom events.


Person County Veterans Pollinator Garden

The PCBA is a proud sponsor of the Person County Veterans Pollinator Garden.  Each year we organize and/or participate in various landscaping field days to keep the garden looking its best.

    PCBA is proud to participate in this years State Fair. We would love to have as many people participate as possible. There are several categories and classes that we want to enter. The theme for our entry this year is ' The future of beekeeping" . This is to help draw interest from young people, to become beekeepers, and to help the hobby grow. We are going to try to show the scientific and community benefits of beekeeping and why young people are so important to this process. If you are interested in participating, or submitting items for the fair, please contact me at 919-452-0520 or at herrmanncni@gmail.com .
