Kid has always loved to watch insects and little creatures very closely. Over the past couple of years he has taken a keen interest in bees and is absorbing all sorts of information about them.
He has learned a lot about keeping bees, and has come to realize that not all hives are equal. There are so many ways to be a humane and healthy beekeeper which is not always commonplace. It is nice to be able to go to the farmer’s market and buy honey from a local apiary who can tell you about their practice.
Kid enthusiastically wants to keep bees, and his great attention to detail with this study makes me want to encourage this passion. This city doesn’t allow urban bee keeping, but I was surprised to learn how many do. In the meantime, we will try to connect with a local beekeeper and see if we have set up a time to visit their farm.
