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.

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, and meetings are now held regularly at the St. James School, 3217 Clearfield St., 19132, on the third Thursday of each month (generally). We believe this location to be central to our wide membership of Philadelphians; the extensive grounds allow us to have a teaching apiary.  Its community room can accommodate a large group and offers adequate parking as well as a comfortable, safe environment.

Thanks for your interest, and we hope to see you at our next meeting!
(The Guild was instrumental in raising the historic marker, shown at right, in 2010.  It can be found at 106 S. Front St., Philly.
