    Cool

    I have been a vegetable gardener for a number of years, and decided to start keeping bees as a way to increase my garden's yield (especially the melons). I purchased my hive kit from Dadant, contacted the State Dept. of Ag for permit, assembled and painted my hive.

    When I contacted the Village of Palatine, Illinois, where I live, I found that the ordinances regarding beekeeping are so restrictive, that I could not keep a hive in my yard.

    I still want to start bee keeping, but I am in need of a place to put the hive. I have been looking on the net for lists of farms or anywhere that might be looking for free pollination while I get up to speed with my hobby. Does anyone have any great ideas on how to find a local place to put my hive?

    Thanks,
    Roger
