NYC beekeepers swarm City Hall to protest ban - Obama Buzz Off!
NEW YORK - There's a secret buzzing around the rooftops and backyard gardens of New York.
Despite city regulations prohibiting it, hundreds of New Yorkers have kept beehives on rooftops and backyard gardens for years, defying the law in their efforts to create something sustainable in the urban environment.
They're people like 61-year-old Deborah Romano, a gardener and first-time beekeeper in Brooklyn. She had hopes of selling honey at the city's various green markets — but that dream was put on hold when a complaint drew city inspectors, she was ordered to pay a fine and her hive was removed.
I Challenge President Obama to a "Buzz off"
I was keeping honeybees, long before it was cool...
This is my article from last year...
My current genetic line has lasted 3 seasons with no chemical treatments for common bee ailments. Heavy Losses but a naturally resistent bee is the result.
Say no to pharmaceutical companies!
I challenge President Obama to a shirtless, shorts and shoes only top to bottom hive inspection. Winner gets to decide whether Cap and Trade Passes... If I win, Cap and Trade dies!
Winner to be determined by whoever gives up first or has the least number
of stings when done.
