Beekeepers of Gilmer County (BGC)
BGC is a club dedicated and focused on the sustainable art of beekeeping and the overwhelming positive affect bees have on our environment and agriculture. Our passion is learning more about the world of honeybees, and how we can better understand how we can maintain their population and honey production in our local area. If you are excited about bees and their impact on our community, we welcome you to join us in this fascinating world.
