We are in the process of proposing to our town that the town allow and endorse, the establishment of a community apiary - one that incorporates a few hives in a fenced off yard with a viewing area, on town supplied land. Our town thinks it is a great idea but wants to hear of other municipalities that have helped established a community apiary. We envision school children coming to the apiary to learn how vital pollinators of all types, with an emphasis on honey bees, are to human existence.
If your community does this, or you know of a community that supports something similar to what we are hoping to accomplish, please message me the particulars.
