Bee Keeping Now Legal in NYC! Yipppeeeeee

This just in from the people at Food Justice:

This morning, the NYC Board of Health voted in favor of lifting the ban on beekeeping in Health Code Article 161, which previously rendered beekeeping illegal. Today's vote is an important victory for all of those who support bees, beekeepers, urban agriculture and a greener, healthier and more sustainable New York City!

This video was made a few months back when the campaign to repeal article 161 was in full swing, it's an interesting look at urban bees and the people who love them (and their honey!)
