Bethel Metz: HONEY BEE VICTORY IN PORT WASHINGTON, WISCONSIN!!!

“We did it!!! We accomplished the seemingly never-ending task of getting the City of Port Washington to pass the urban beekeeping ordinance! After 3 months of hard work, Ordinance #2012-1 passed unanimously last night. While this means absolutely nothing to some people and very little to most others, and while I am not “changing the world,” after battling for over 3 months to get this changed, this huge victory in my little corner of the world means everything to me because it literally has been my world. So as insignificant as this may be to people, please allow me to celebrate for a few days because we quite literally accomplished the impossible.”

World renowned Biodynamic Beekeeper Gunther Hauk says in Queen of the Sun:

“I think the message the bees are giving us now that they are threatening to disappear from the earth is that they are telling us to change our ways, to become stewards, to become nurturers, to become true caretakers. We are in such a habit of exploiting nature for our own ends and now we have to learn how to care for it. The honey bees right now I think are saying if you continue your ways, I’m withdrawing, you can go the way you are going without me and that will not be a long time that we will be going without the honey bee.”

PLEASE SIGN OUR NEW PETITION : Legalize Urban Beekeeping in Los Angeles!!

Atlanta, New York, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Spokane, Chicago, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver and most recently Santa Monica have all taken decisive action and legalized urban beekeeping. Los Angeles currently outlaws beekeeping in residential areas, and the city’s policy is to exterminate all feral honey bees. With worldwide bee populations threatened with Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) and urban beekeeping more popular than ever, this policy needs to change. We believe it to be a necessary and just measure requiring immediate action.
