Just recently found your blog and I have to say it's awesome! And your group of beeks in Southern CA is truly dedicated.
I will be following your blog daily and have just gone through ALL your old blogs, and watched many of the videos.
Is there a Backwards Beekeeper group in Northern CA?
Not that we know of. Maybe you should start one!
I started beekeepeing going the all natural, chemical/treatment-free method as well.
Foundationless with starter strips.
Thanks and looking forward to your future blogs!
