|The White House bee hive.|
In the spring of 2010 two hives were installed on the roof of Vancouver City Hall. On the green roof of Vancouver's Fairmont Waterfront Hotel there is a herb garden and 5 bee hives which brought in over 600 pounds of honey this year. Vancouver's new convention center has a 6 acre green roof which is also home to a bee hive. While the future of urban beekeeping has never looked so good there are still a few unfortunate beekeepers like Bethel of Port Washington, Wisconsin struggling against city officials to keep bees (http://bethelsbees.wordpress.com/2011/11/04/lets-back-the-truck-up-for-a-sec/).
