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.
Placerville Senior Center
937 Spring Street, Placerville, CA
Call John Havicon at 916.996.8371 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Club meeting may be cancelled
We should know by noon Sunday if the Senior Center will be open. If the meeting is cancelled, we will email all members, as well as post on Facebook and our website.
This month we welcome Kit Veerkamp from the El Dorado Master Gardeners who will be speaking to us on planting for pollinators. As you start planning for this year’s gardens, you won’t want to miss out on her recommendations.
In addition to our monthly question and answers, we’ll also be holding our raffle. All re-gifted, gently used or plant donations are greatly appreciated. For every item you bring, you’ll receive a free raffle ticket.
After the meeting many members head to Placerville Brewing Company for dinner and more bee conversation.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the meeting!
