Thank you to everyone who sent photos! I received more data than I had pages, so I will slowly get your data points moved to this website.

FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions

When will I get my book? As soon as humanly possible. I aim to get books distributed in time to use for the 2022 season. They will be distributed in TWO ROUNDS. I would like users to take an online survey in Oct. 2022 to rate the usefulness of the planner, so prepare to leave your email address and I’ll get in touch with you then.

    • ROUND 1 is for groups, because new beekeepers are the target audience of this project, clubs and classes are prioritized. Beekeeping instructors and club leaders can request their quantity with my Contact Form <–click.
    • ROUND 2 is for individuals. Again, use my Contact Form <–click.

How can this book be free? Funds were secured through a Farmer Rancher Grant, FNC21-1289, a program of North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education to print the book. Priority Shipping by USPS was included in the budget proposal. 

Will you take a donation? YES. Many people have asked. I don’t know if people weird about taking free things or uncomfortable about receiving a planner to use as a gift, but I get it, especially for the few of you who aren’t in the state or surrounding county. I’ve also had a couple of you say that I’ve done so much for the community that they want to recognize that by paying for the planner. (I’m flattered, thank you.) Since I am not an organization, let’s call it a cash barter. The barter would mostly likely go toward updating (I know you’re curious, so go ahead and click on the URL to open a new tab). A barter of $10-25 will get an average 2 – 4 cities updated. >Click here for a cash barter.< Thank you!
