forbidden sweetness

As we rebel against the current crappy industrialized food system, and as more & more people migrate to big cities, urban agriculture is going to become more & more prevalent. And where would a successful urbanized & localized agricultural system be without pollinators?

By pollinators in this case, I’m strictly talking bees.

Unlike other cities across the nation, beekeeping is still illegal in NYC. Despite that little obstacle, it’s becoming increasingly popular, especially in Brooklyn.

Here’s a great little video featuring some Brooklyn restaurateurs who are in the business of bees:

Read more about the work being done to legalize beekeeping.

Sign the petition to legalize the bees.
