The Central Valley Beekeepers Association (CVBA) is dedicated to helping promote and educate the public about the benefits of the honey bee.




        Our 2013 beekeeping class was well attended by enthusiastic future beekeepers.  We are planning to offer our All Day Backyard Beekeeping class again next year.  Please visit the Classes page for details (updated as information becomes available).

        We had a great time at The Big Fresno Fair.  Many enthusiastic visitors learned about the importance and beauty of the honeybee and it's gifts.  People of all ages were enchanted as they watched several honeybee colonies in our observation hives go about their work of maintaining their homes (hives) seeing first hand where the term "busy bee" came from.  Please be sure to come back next year and bring your friends.  If you missed our display, please be sure to stop by next year . . . you won't be disappointed.


CVBA meetings are generally held the third Thursday of each month; but, be sure to check
the Calendar of Events and/or News and Announcements to be sure.
