I am interested in bee keeping -- my family used to have bees when I was a child, and I live across from Prospect Park with roof access. I think it is important to realize the important role that bees play in pollination. And they are very clever!
Clearly, this is a supportive and dedicated community with a desire to help individuals interested in bee keeping to become responsible bee keepers. With the change in the law, interest and potential problems have already started to increase. To keep the endeavor from attracting a bad name and developing practices that are not good for either bees or bee keeping, mentoring by more experienced practitioners will be essential.
