legalize beekeeping

The City of Los Angeles Department of City Planning is in the process of preparing an ordinance to allow beekeeping on single-family zone lots, with a draft ordinance expected before City Planning Commission in the spring of 2015. This ordinance draft is in response to a City Council Motion directing our Department and Animal Services to report back on the feasibility of beekeeping in residential neighborhoods.

TOPIC: Future Zombee Apocalypse: Bee Prepared and Stick Together!
What will beekeeping be like 25, 50, or 100 years from now? The bee world is changing quickly. So are the bees and their environment. Their lessons in survival are their most valuable gift. Like the bees, we beekeepers must look to diversity, cooperation, and adaptability for our resilience. Anarchy Apiaries is around 500 hives of various types in all kinds of situations from New York to Florida. The more I bee the less I know. I’ll talk about our do-it-yourself methods, several hive designs, queen-raising, healthier, hardier bees with no treatments, and a future of a self-reliant beekeeping community with more hives than televisions.
