|Beekeepers in New York City|
If you're in New York City this Thursday check out the free beekeeping course (http://www.nycbeekeeping.com/events/40298962/?eventId=40298962&action=detail) put on by NYC Beekeeping. Beekeeping became legal in New York City in 2010 and has gained great popularity since then. Prior to that people kept bees in New York illegally as they have in Vancouver. Here's a video on NYC beekeepers in 2009 prior to the legalization.
For beekeeping lessons in the Vancouver area check out Beekeeping Courses (Beekeeping courses) at the top of the page. Blessedbee and Honeyland Canada have courses available in January and February.
