    Very good. The more bees, the more honey, the more self-sufficient folks can be.

    My wife this out to me as we live near parks and a lot of green. Unfortunately, my landlord would never left me keep bees; I'm surprised he lets me keep my cat.

    If I had a bigger back yard, I might try it, but as it is, I'll have to pass.

    IT goes along with the whole urban chicken movement, I guess, and as I said before, anything that makes folks more self-sufficient is probably a good thing.

    Even if you don't have a backyard of your own, you can always borrow some access to a flower and join the hunt for bees. Check out the Great Sunflower Project at http://www.greatsunflower.org/. My yard is probably too small for a hive, but it's not too small to host some bee loving flowers. Plant a flower, feed a bee (or three)!

    You don't need a big backyard to keep bees. Here in Detroit, there's a whole group of people that keep bees in yards as small as 40' wide. We also buy honey from a renegade beekeeper that places hives on the rooftops of abandoned buildings and in vacant lots all around the city. Yea...Detroit has a lot of those. We're even releasing a mead made from that honey we're calling The D's Bees.
