Asphalt + Apiaries: The Impact of Urban Beekeeping
It’s been almost a decade since New York City legalized beekeeping, and the city is now buzzing with activity. There are hives at rooftop farms, community gardens, and schools in all five boroughs. In this episode, host Lisa Held talks to Brooklyn Grange Farm’s head beekeeper Geraldine Simonis and City Growers beekeeper and educator Renel Saint Jour about what beekeeping in an urban environment looks like, how city bees benefit urban farms and other green spaces, and whether cities can contribute to reversing the worldwide decline of pollinators.
