    Urban beekeeping is a booming hobby! I just want to encourage anyone interested to give this a shot. You can get so much out of (not just talking about honey!) plus you’re helping save our earth. There is probably a beekeepers association near you to further your education as well as many resources online. I learned from a company called Beepods which focuses on sustainable urban beekeeping. I would recommend them to anyone interested! Have fun!
