Save The Honey Bee License Plate



GA Honey Bee License Plate

Thank you to everyone who bought a plate through our website! We appreciate YOU. We have reached our goal of paying back the $25,000 we borrowed from our treasury to get the license plate manufactured.

You can, of course, still purchase a Save the Honey Bee license plate from the state of Georgia either at your county office or through the Georgia Drives website. We receive $22 every time you purchase or renew a Save the Honey Bee plate, so thank you for your support.

The Georgia Beekeepers Association

As the state organization for Georgia beekeepers, we provide connections for beekeepers across the state. We do this in several ways:

  • We hold two meetings a year with outstanding speakers and workshops. Our Spring Meeting is held the third weekend in February, and the Fall Meeting is held on the last weekend in September.
  • We publish a monthly newsletter, Spilling the Honey, which includes events and meetings held by clubs across the state each month and throughout the newsletter we include articles and information helpful to our state beekeepers.
  • We also provide public education and service about beekeeping. Our members are speakers to garden clubs, schools, and other educational groups. We have established apiaries in state parks throughout Georgia, have participated in educating prisoners to become beekeepers.
  • We provide a list of beekeepers selling bees, honey and providing services to help the public such as removing swarms or bees living in structures like houses.
  • We send representatives to national beekeeping meetings to assure that we have current knowledge available to us in Georgia.
  • We use the Buzz Fund Grant to support research in the beekeeping community.
