Hello There,

?????????? I couldn't help but notice the current post. I've been a long time member but I don't often participate because...well, life is too crazy here sometimes to have a social life. But I do read the posts :)? I am a 3rd generation beekeeper and currently have 6 hives in the Bronx that are under Majora Carter's urban renewal program and we use organic/natural beekeeping methods. We currently are low on wax, though we have lots of honey :)? Of course, we expect more next year, if you are interested. There are several resources and beekeepers in the city as well ( I believe the New York City Beekeeper's Club is one of them?)...so keep a look out! :)

Take Care,
Zan

i'm glad you posed that question . it reminded me that there is a long island beekeepers club. they have a classified section right on their website i just found...

check this site,
http://www.longislandbeekeepers.org/

this is great , as i've been wanting to find a local source for raw honey.
i currently buy in bulk with our baldwin rawfoods coop,from honey gardens in vermont

i also use pure beeswax in my woodworking finish recipes for native flutes ,salad bowls and goblets etc. ive gotten that in bulk from ebay, but a local/ethical apiary would be MUCH better.

i? love bartering as well. another item i make is candle holders from reclaimed trees/branches,? what are you interested in bartering?


?

Namaste'
