I think I will laminate the calendar and hang in the barn where I have some hives … kinda like a star chart! – Christine C.
Are you missing nectar flows? What bee-loving plants could you add during periods of dearth?
A Beekeeper’s Year (prairie edition) Calendar was designed to encourage beekeepers to work with nature and get answers to those questions above.
The Calendar combines beekeeping activities as they relate to phenology in a calendar year. Written for multiple learning styles with chronological tables with words only on the other side (phenology on the left and beekeeping chores on the right) and a graphic, low text version with the same information shown visually on the reverse.
Original design is 11″ x 17″ and folded once in the center to 8.5″ x 11″ for convenient storage.
The price includes 2 downloads within 7 days and covers hosting and banking fees. Be sure to select “Local pickup” to avoid a shipping charge – there’s nothing to ship!
This calendar comes from collaborating with many Iowans participating in my grant, and you can read details here: https://projects.sare.org/sare_project/fnc21-1289/
