    Default Green Roof with a hive in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

    I know, talk about an idealistic permaculturists dream! This green roof is mostly sedum and is blooming (yellow flowers) as i install the hive on June 5th, 2010 on Frost street near McCarren Park in Brooklyn, NY.

    And the building owner is talking about installing a grey water toilet system. Brooklyn truly is the new New York!

    oh to dream...

    All you need to do now is get off packages and install nucs instead and it will be indeed PERFECT. Nice start!

    Yeah, first year beekeeper and just getting into the community so i had to start with packages unfortunately. Planning to get bees from local beekeepers next time. Have 5 hives going now including a KTBH which i constructed a few weeks ago. Here's the new KTBH i just finished: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ezrahug/4696494673/

    The stand i made- it's simple angle iron and square rod. took an hour to make. no sweat.

    Thanks for the input!
