Welcome to the Lompoc Valley Beekeepers Association
Lompoc Valley Beekeepers Association (LVBKA) is a community
organization that brings together passionate beekeepers in the
Lompoc Valley. Our beekeepers are unpaid volunteers who remove
swarms as a community service. We are not a federal 501(c)
organization, but donations are welcome as they help
defray expenses, e.g. equipment and supplies, associated with
removing and saving the bees.
We are a group of local beekeepers who seek to help others learn more about honey bees
and those interested in beekeeping become established and responsible apiarists.
Some of our members participate in community education programs and can bring an observation hive
into a classroom or to a club meeting.
We're involved in community education through Allan Hancock College courses.
We encourage anyone interested in bees (regardless whether you'd like to be a beekeeper) to consider taking one of these classes.
If you find a bee swarm or have an unwanted hive, please contact LVBKA to assist with the removal of the bees.
We have members who are trained and experienced in the removal of swarms and established hives from a variety of different venues.
If you'd like to become a beekeeper, we can mentor you as you learn to be a responsible beekeeper.
We have a library of books, magazines and videos that are available for loan.
Visit LVBKA on Facebook to learn more.
LVBKA meetings are held monthly at
1520 E. Chestnut Court, Unit A
