Community Education

Mount Diablo Beekeepers Association (MDBA) is dedicated to educating groups in our community about honey bees and the historic art of beekeeping. We have a number of volunteers who visit schools, scout troops, garden clubs, and other interested groups. Typically, our visits include a demonstration hive with live bees, posters, beekeeping equipment, and honey tasting. We ask that a donation ($50 minimum per visit) be made in advance by going to our DONATE section on the website. If necessary, you can donate in the form of a check to MOUNT DIABLO BEEKEEPERS ASSOCIATION. The check should be presented to the beekeeper at the time of visit.

If you’re interested in having us visit your classroom or event, please contact Jan Spieth at
