I’ve been talking about wanting to keep bees for a while now, and I feel like the time is almost right to do something about it. I have the unfortunate luck of living in a building managed by people who don’t care about the quality of life, residents’ concerns, or basically anything except collecting rent money. So as much as I’d like to do a rooftop colony, it may have to wait until I live in another space, or find a willing participant to share space.
Here’s a nice video that Good magazine did profiling an urban beekeeper in New York City.
Hopefully in the next few months I can get something going. There is a group called Backwards Beekeepers here in LA that I’m going to try to reach out to and learn some more.
