Our History

This is the official site of the Beekeepers Association of Central Arizona.  We are a nonprofit club and have been around since 1984. Our goals are to educate and encourage our members and others interested in bees with their beekeeping skills and for an opportunity to meet and to share their knowledge and experience.  

Some of us are professional beekeepers and some are hobbyists with just a few hives and then there are those with no hives that are just interested in bees.  Several members produce honey and various hive products for personal use and as gifts.

We meet once a month, except for the months of July and August at the Valley Garden Center, located at 1809 N. 15th Ave., Phoenix, Az.  85007.  The meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month.
