I wrote the listserv in November re a thesis on NYC community gardens. I appreciated the quality responses.
I am writing today to elicit information on beekeeping in urban community gardens. I hope to gather contact info and names of beekeepers, gardeners, zoning professionals and others. I am exploring an analysis of beekeeping (and perhaps other appropriate scale husbandry) in urban community gardens.
Here are the questions I hope to address.
- How does beekeeping effect the image or strength of gardens? Are they a symbol, a point of community organization and pride?
- How does it interface with zoning codes? Fear of bee stings?
- How big are harvests? How distributed?
- Do the bees deter "bad elements"?
- How are they used in education, job training, business incubation?
I would appreciate any insights and contacts. I am a beekeeper and have previously raised pigs and chickens.
