    2/22/20 Update: The Fourth Friday organizers contacted us today to say Long Beach Beekeepers is not a good fit this month due to some performances planned in the area, but we are on for March 27. 

    Members and non-members alike welcome at this street fair on Long Beach's Retro Row.  The club provides a frame of honey bees from a working hive, information on backyard beekeeping with experienced beekeepers to share their knowledge and love of bees at this community outreach event.

    Ready to get your hands dirty? Our bee yard and adjacent bee-friendly garden at the South 40 Community Garden need a bit of ongoing TLC. Come support the club by lending a helping hand to maintain clear access around the hive and enclosure.

    Tasks include clearing weeds and laying down cardboard and mulch as a weed barrier inside the bee yard. Cardboard donations welcome! These bees are pretty mellow, but a beekeeping suit is recommended for anyone working in the enclosure.

    Basic garden tools available. Gloves, water, and your favorite hand tool recommended. Hats are also highly encouraged!
