The South Carolina Mid-State Beekeepers Association

Community Outreach

Mid-State Beekeepers Association has a Community Outreach Committee charged with bringing a presence to local events. Its mission includes public awareness and education about honey bees and the many benefits they bring to our community and lives.

Mission Statement:

The Mid-State Beekeepers Association Community Outreach Program will promote and create awareness of the importance of Honey Bees in the Midlands of South Carolina. This will be accomplished through education, handouts, and professional displays at public events focused on cultivating potential new beekeepers.  The secondary goal is to provide a venue for Mid-State Members to sell their products, promote their honey bee business, gain service credits toward their certifications, and carry out activities designed to inform and encourage practices by non-beekeepers which would help protect both the honey bee and other native insect pollinators.


If you would like to participate, the committee is divided into two groups such that interested members could choose to donate their time to Planning Committee efforts, or Event Support. Planning Committee gets things organized for the event and the Event Support Staff actually man the tables. Contact Ariel if you are interested.
