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.

Show off your honey!
We thought it would be fun to have a 'honey tasting' at this month's meeting. We'll supply the sample cups and tasting sticks –– you bring the honey! We'll also have a refractometer to check moisture content. If you bottle your honey for resale, bring in your finished product. We'd love to see all the different labels and jars!
Don't forget 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!
