Founded in 1995, the Roseland Beekeeping Group is a member group of Cornwall Beekeepers Association, which is in turn part of the British Beekeepers Association.
We are an inclusive, lively and diverse group of individuals connected by beekeeping. As a result we are a group of new, novice and more experienced members that help each other by working together.
Our aim is to promote the craft of beekeeping by encouraging, educating and supporting both new and existing beekeepers, and those interested in learning more about honeybees.
We are very proud of the help we are able to offer to anyone thinking of taking up beekeeping. One of our longstanding members runs the theory courses organised by Truro College. We have a Group apiary based at the Lost Gardens of Heligan where we offer training in practical skills for new beekeepers. In addition, we have a mentoring system to offer advice and hands-on assistance to anyone who requires it in their first few years of beekeeping, and beyond!
We hold a series of very interesting and topical talks over the Winter months and we arrange a series of bee safaris in the Spring/Summer. But it’s not all work as we have very popular Christmas and Summer social events.
In order to spread the load of maintaining such an active and successful Group, we encourage members to get involved and join in, whether experienced or new to the Group.
Have a look at the map below to see the current geographical spread of our membership; members are of course welcome from anywhere outside of this area.
Please browse the site and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact us; we will be very happy to help you further.
