Dear fellow permies,

I am very grateful to all of you who are helping me create a new communal space for learning and working in Brooklyn.  We are just beginning to realize the potential, but it is beginning to take shape. I urge the teachers among you to contact us about offering workshops, talks or classes. Also, there is still regular workspace available. E-mail me if you are interested.

This last week of January, we offer you radical education, beekeeping and winter health.

Beekeeping: Find out how to get ready for spring; making it legal
John Howe, founder of the Brooklyn Bee, lives in Fort Greene where he has three beehives on his roof. The bees make honey that John sells; he also makes soap, lip balm and candles from beeswax. Come learn how to keep bees. Plus, this is the week that the City Council holds hearings to legalize beekeeping in NYC (Wednesday, Feb 3). Just Food will speak briefly about the legislation and what we can do to make sure it passes.
