Changing the World!

A New York Times article about the continuing rise of urban beekeeping and the struggle to gain legalization in many cities features two members from my local club. Daniel Salisbury and Max Wong of Backwards Beekeeping group are prominently featured in the article with information on their quest to legalize beekeeping in Santa Monica and Los Angeles.

Our fearless leader, Kirk, affirms that urban beekeeping will change the world. Gotta love that, from one idealistic to another, come on let's make the world a better place!

My good friends Dean and Laurie wrote a book on beekeeping:The Complete Idiot's Guide to Beekeeping, a Penquin publication. I highly recommend it. Organic and treatment-free is the way to go. It's a highly entertaining and informational read, even if one doesn't intend to keep bees.

That book is our bee group bible. It is on my bedside table and I have recommended it to loads of people. Thank for posting it her Queen Cupcake.
