More and more these days beekeepers seem to be everywhere. From the mountains to the fields to the city, beekeeping has become popular with many as we look to connect with nature and learn or relearn about where our food comes from.
We often get questions from those who are new to beekeeping about where you can keep bees. Do you have to have a big field away from everyone? As this video posted at treehugger.com will show, the answer is a resounding no. While there are certainly different concerns for urban beekeepers as Ron talks about in this video (regulations, neighbors, space), urban beekeeping is catching all over the US and in other countries as well.
Soon we’ll do a few more posts about how to figure out the regulations for your area, what special concerns you might have as an urban beekeeper and lots of other great educational information to help you catch the beekeeping bug but for now let us know, are you a City Bee or a Country Bee? We’d love to hear from you so please let us know in the comments section below!
