Since the 1970’s, the Sacramento Area Beekeepers Association (SABA) has been dedicated to furthering an interest in bees. We love bees and share what we know about beekeeping with each other and with our communities. Whether you are an experienced apiarist, a novice beekeeper or venturing into the world of bees and beekeeping for the first time, we look forward to meeting you.
Become a member now or drop by one of our meetings to hear how local beekeepers manage their hives through the seasons, exchange ideas or techniques for creating the optimum pollinator environment for your bees, or ask questions about getting started. We offer beginner through advanced training courses from experts within the industry.
SABA regularly invites speakers to share their expertise about anything ‘bee’, from landscaping designs that encourage bees to feel at home in our yards, to innovative uses for honey, to everything you want to know about top-bar hives but are afraid to ask. Check for upcoming events here.
In the community, SABA is an educational resource on bees and beekeeping. We offer classes, swarm removal volunteers, a chance to hang out with us each year at the county fair and other local events.
The primary purpose of SABA is to increase public awareness and understanding of bees, and their importance as pollinators. We are happy to share with others our love of bees and our concern for bees’ sustainability.
