The Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild has grown from what began in 2009 as a small, informal group of local beekeepers. Because of the swift growth of our membership, The Guild quickly established itself as a not-for-profit organization.
Meetings are held regularly at the St. James School, 3217 Clearfield St., 19132, at 7:00 pm on the third Thursday of each month (generally). Our meetings are open to the public. This location is central to our wide membership of Philadelphians; the extensive grounds permit a teaching apiary. Its community room can accommodate a large group and offers adequate parking as well as a comfortable, safe environment.
Located in the cradle of American Beekeeping, the Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild works to encourage and promote urban beekeeping through fellowship and education, and to raise awareness of the importance of bees to our environment.
