Andrew Coté, 38 years old, from 4 generations of beekeepers, in the apiary in the new organic farm set up on a roof by Ben Flanner in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, just across from Manhattan. http://rooftopfarms.org/ With 300m2 of garden, the farm is counting on rapidly expanding to 1200m2; henhouses are being considered.<br />
Andrew is the founder of the New York City Beekeepers’ Association, created in December 2008, which is rapidly growing, bringing together experienced and beginner beekeepers and also all bee lovers. Surfing the “green” wave of the Obama administration, the beekeepers’ association of New York hopes to obtain the legalization of beekeeping in the Big Apple.
