Our mission is to provide a social and educational organization to promote and improve the art of beekeeping.
The El Dorado Beekeepers was established in 2011 and is a nonprofit organization. We gather monthly to promote and support beekeepers and beekeeping in El Dorado County.
Membership meetings are held the second Sunday of the month from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm, and are open to the public. Come early to the meeting and chat with other beekeepers.
The one-way driveway to the Senior Center is accessed from Tunnel St. and uphill at Robin Court. Look for our yellow signs to help direct you.

Beekeeping in Top Bar Hives
Curious about Top Bar Hives? Join us this month as club member Chuck Jachens discusses the management techniques and construction of top bar hives. Chuck will also be comparing the differences and similarities to Langstroth hives. For the second half of our meeting we'll be discussing what's going on in your hives during autumn and what you should be doing.
We’ll also be holding our raffle. All re-gifted, gently used or plant donations are greatly appreciated. Receive a free raffle ticket for every donated item you bring. Our club store will also be open. For sale are hats, tee-shirts, tote bags, mite wash cups and pollen patties.
After the meeting many members head to Placerville Brewing Company for dinner and more bee conversation. Join us there!
See everyone at the meeting!
