NY City Attempts To Lift Ban On Beekeeping: Good News Wednesday!

EIGN has always loved bees.

"[New York City's] Board of Health on Thursday proposed lifting a ban on beekeeping, partly in response to the rising popularity of urban bee colonies." (nytimes)

"The department said in a statement: 'After the Board of Health received a petition from a group wanting to promote honey-bee keeping as sustainable agriculture, the Health Department looked into urban beekeeping and found that responsible urban beekeeping does not pose a public health issue.'" (nytimes)

Here's hoping it passes.
