About us


New Branch Apiary at Jeskyns Community Woodland. What fantastic progress has been made at our new site thanks to the hard work of all the working parties made up of our willing members, friends and family, it couldn’t have been achieved without the enthusiastic teamwork from everybody who participated.

We are the GBKA, a hive for the beekeepers of Kent. We are an evergrowing group of beekeepers, bee enthusiasts, and honey lovers who live, work and pollinate in and around Gravesend, in the Garden of England, and who happen to share a love for the humble honeybee and her delicious doings.

The mission of the GBKA is to provide our members with a medium for sharing knowledge and mutual interest in beekeeping, and to educate and promote the benefits of beekeeping to the world, in a forum of friendship and fun, and to do so safely and responsibly in an any environment.

Whether you are a beekeeper with a few colonies or you just like honey in your tea, you are welcome to join our club
