We are grateful to Ashurst for sponsoring our forage-creation programmme.
Please contact us if you'd like to find out how you can support our education, training and forage-creation projects.
The London Beekeepers' Association (LBKA) represents the interests of beekeepers and urban beekeeping in the central London area (see neighbouring associations). We provide education and advice, promoting responsible bee keeping and raising awareness of the issues affecting bees.
If you live in London and already keep bees, intend to do so or are simply interested in this fascinating hobby, LBKA is the association for you. Even if you don't keep bees, joining us will help support our cause, our campaigns and education programmes.
The government has now launched the public consultation on the proposed National Pollinator Strategy, which the BBKA have been heavily involved in the development of. Please consider taking part.
