beekeeping in community gardens

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?
  • etc.

 I would appreciate any insights and contacts.  I am a beekeeper and have previously raised pigs and chickens.
