Thanks to our active members, the CSBA was well represented at the annual Almond Conference. Participation at the Almond Conference is important for facilitating communication between beekeepers and almond growers. Our industries work closely together and it is important we understand each other’s needs and current issues. Mike Tolmachoff deserves special thanks for making this booth possible each year for the past several years. Many other volunteers, including Buzz Landon and Russell Heitkam posing for us in the picture, generously donated their time to help promote our industry and foster relationships with almond farmers. Kodua Galietti used her artistic talent to design the attractive new backdrop for our booth.
