PRESENTED BY: CHRISTI BAUGHMAN
There are five distinct seasons to the beekeeping year in north Texas; each seasonal change determines what the bees will be doing and thus what we as beekeepers should be doing.
Christi Baughman began beekeeping over 15 years ago. Like many novice beekeepers, she started with just a few hives in her backyard. It wasn't long, however, that Christi recognized her knack for raising healthy bees, and began to grow her hives and business into beegirl.biz.
Christi is an active Board Member of the Trinity Valley Beekeepers Association, a North Texas Master Naturalist, a member of North Dakota Beekeepers Association, and a member of the Texas Beekeepers Association.
I have heard Christi Baughman's presentation several times and have learned something every time. THIS IS A CAN'T MISS PRESENTATION - Jerry Alcorn
