New York beekeeping a growing but illicit hobby
Busy bees in the Big Apple: Beekeeping is on the rise in New York, although it means breaking the law. City Councilman David Yassky of Brooklyn, backed by Just Food, is seeking to legalize it as a legitimate form of agriculture. The New York City Beekeepers Association offers classes, matches people who want to keep bees with people who have room for hives, and sells beekeeping starter kits. Pollinator Week begins Monday; this website has lots of resources for celebrating our insect helpers. (NYTimes.com)
