As a volunteer-led organization, member dues are vital to help us further our educational mission. Annual dues of $20 may be paid online, mailed or delivered in person at our regular meeting.
Current classes include Beekeeping 101 held 8 AM-9:30 AM on the first Saturday of the month (weather permitting, so check for updates) and Bee Prepared, a 12-hour course designed to turn non-beekeepers into backyard beekeepers. Classes held at the South 40 Community Garden courtesy of Long Beach Organic.
We love bees and we are eager to share our passion. In additional to our classes focused on training aspiring beekeepers, Long Beach Beekeepers spreads the word at one-time and recurring events. Observation hives - one frame of honeycomb and bees from a working hive - enable us to show the inner workings of life inside the hive.
Our bees have traveled to preschools, home schools and elementary schools; neighborhood associations and street fairs; Girl Scout troops, garden clubs and Earth Day events.
Do you have a group that would like to meet our bees? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be a responsible beekeeper and a good neighbor by complying with local beekeeping ordinances.
Beekeeping equipment maybe purchased at local shops and online. Here are some reputable outlets that carry hive boxes, frames, protective gear, honey bees, honey extraction tools, jars and more.
The club does not remove swarms, but we can point you in the right direction for some reputable beekeepers.
