Honey Bees-Urban-Beekeepes-NYC033.tif
Eddie Diaz, 31 years old, is a new beekeeper. He started in January with two hives set up on the roof of a building on Lorimer Street in Brooklyn. “We are a group of more or less 25 people that got together by chance, we must total about a hundred hives in Brooklyn. On my count, there must be nearly 1000 hives in New York at present. It’s still underground, informal. But we are taking very seriously the present revolution. Lots of young people are throwing themselves into alternative organic farming projects in the community gardens, or else the rooftop gardens. Some even plan to buy land outside New York City… People need to feel in touch with nature. I work in an organic restaurant which grows nearly half of its vegetable in terraced gardens”.
