The San Francisco Beekeepers Association is the premier organization for beekeepers in our city. We work to promote the welfare of honeybees and those who manage them, perform public outreach on behalf of bees to schools and civic groups, conduct classes to train incoming beekeepers on the art and science of managing bees, and define and promote safe, community-friendly and environmentally sound beekeeping practices, maintain equipment such as extractors that are vital to beekeeping, help San Francisco beekeepers replenish lost stock with annual “bee pack” purchases, and offer swarm removal services to the public at no or low cost.
The club was founded in 1976 and is organized as a not-for-profit 501(c)7 organization. Membership costs just $30 per year ($40 for a family membership) and you can join the club now online. We hold monthly meetings in the city that are open to the public at no cost.
