Last summer, when I was at the South Wedge Farmers Market, I discovered the Bloomfield Honey Farm booth. Besides honey they also sold beekeeping supplies. That got me thinking. I wasn't getting anywhere with my city chickens plans, but they explained that you can have bees in the city.
Tonight Aaron and I went to a Beekeeping class. We learned so much and are signing up for the beekeeping mentor program in 2012. I already have my bee hive Aaron got me for Xmas but it is too far along for this year to start. Next season we will take some more classes, get our mentor and even acquire local bees from the local beekeeping club rather than ordering online Southern bees with questionable backgrounds.
