hives above!

Got bees in your bonnet? The Brooklyn Bee Apiary will be hosting a Newcomer's Meeting this coming Saturday, November 14th, at 1:00pm.

More than just a means of taking your rooftop gardening up a notch, urban beekeeping is an incredible way to support a creature essential to New York's natural ecosystem. Local honey also reduces the severity of allergies; contains a wealth of anti-bacterial and -microbial properties, and it is a centuries-old ingredient in skin and hair beautifiers. Oh, and it tastes great, too!

If you would like to start keeping, or just want to learn more about this amazing practice, sign up at MeetUp.com. Hurry! Space is limited.
