WATCH: Honey Bee Rescue – HoneyLove.org


Paul Hekimian of Santa Monica invited HoneyLove to rescue a beehive from his backyard and set him up to be an urban beekeeper. Paul is taking advantage of Santa Monica’s new ordinance to allow urban beekeeping. He is just the fourth person to register a hive.
