Wow – you [and the honey queen] did an amazing job with the Beekeeping program! …. I think you two may have had the most engaged audience I’ve had since I started…. I can’t believe how many questions you had to field!

Julia is passionate about bees, and it shows in every project and communication that she gets involved in! She sends out informative emails that provide essential information on what a beekeeper should focus on, based on the time of the year. Her content is written in a manner that makes you feel like you are sitting with her, having a conversation! I highly recommend getting on her distribution list if you aren’t already!

Hi! We gave the lip balm to family (and our kids!) over Christmas, and all are big fans. Thanks for sending! It’s good stuff.
I love my copy - these (Phenology Calendars) are great!

Thank you for the beautiful products!!!! Omgoodness both will be so useful and I think I will laminate the calendar and hang in the barn where I have some hives! We are a little further south (latitude of 40) but of course same order. So it is kinda like a star chart! I am looking forward to writing ideas for next year in the monthly spots in the planner as I read up over the winter and then will be able to record what I actually implement next year! What a beautiful and simple to use resource

I just wish that I had had this experience when I first started beekeeping and finding no support for assessing my hives. Beekeeping is one of those life-long learning experiences.

This second year (winter beekeeping course) had much more information that the first year. I don't know what more Julia could include.

Julia is always a very informative teacher. She provides many other reference resources. Her goal is to share her knowledge with beekeepers and to also listen to others' experiences.
