About the MBA

The Monadnock Beekeepers Association is a beekeeping club for both beginning and experienced beekeepers in the Monadnock and Connecticut River Valley regions. We usually meet on the first Thursday of each month either at Stonewall Farm in Keene, NH or at the Dublin Public Library in Dublin, NH. Please feel free to come to a meeting or contact us if you have an interest in beekeeping.

Honey Bee Mural Project Fund-Raiser

New Hampshire’s first honey bee mural project fund-raiser is just shy of 80% of the initial goal (of $15K). Our first campaign through The Local Crowd Monadnock ( runs for just four more days. Be sure to visit the site to track progress.

It would be wonderful to have YOU join in support of this endeavor and help us reach the goal prior to the artist’s arrival in August. Feel free to share the buzz! And thank you for your consideration!
