Surrey Beekeepers Association Gatherings: A Hub for Practical Beekeeping Insights and Community Engagement

Join our monthly meetings to dive into the world of beekeeping with hands-on guidance and expert advice. It’s a perfect opportunity to connect with fellow beekeepers, share experiences, and expand your network. Beyond beekeeping, these gatherings are a great chance to socialize and be part of a vibrant community passionate about apiculture. Whether you’re a seasoned beekeeper or just starting, our meetings offer something valuable for everyone in the pursuit of beekeeping excellence.


Welcome 2024!

Bees are like oxygen: ubiquitous, essential, and, for the most part, unseen. While we might overlook them, they lie at the heart of relationships that bind the human and natural worlds” Thor Hansonis

As we usher in 2024, it’s not just about adapting to a new normal, but also about embracing an exciting new era for the Surrey Bee Club. This year promises to be a landmark period with thrilling new events and innovative projects on the horizon.

The Surrey Bee Club stands as a testament to resilient community spirit. While the pandemic saw us connecting virtually, we now eagerly anticipate our in-person gatherings. The club is a haven for both experienced and novice beekeepers (and those contemplating beekeeping), offering a chance to delve into the basics, discover novel approaches, listen to the rich experiences of our long-standing members, and above all, to celebrate and protect our bees.

The past few years have highlighted the importance of human connections in our lives. Our well-being, happiness, and longevity are profoundly linked to the quality and depth of our relationships.

Are you ready to embark on a beekeeping journey?

The Surrey Beekeepers Association (SBA), situated in Surrey, BC, Canada, is a vibrant collective of bee enthusiasts. We provide mentorship to newcomers and a strong network of support among members.

Operating as a non-profit organization, SBA’s vibrancy comes from its members’ involvement. Joining us involves a minimal annual fee of $25, a small price for the extensive benefits and experiences you’ll gain.

We meet monthly on every third Wednesday at the Cloverdale Community Centre, 6188-176th Street, Surrey. (Note: Our annual break is in August.)

Join us as we step into this thrilling new era, filled with innovative projects and engaging events that promise to enrich your beekeeping journey and deepen your connection with this vital aspect of our ecosystem.
