LA Times plea - "legalize beekeeping, L.A." 

HoneyLove's President, Rob McFarland, recently appeared in a Los Angeles Times editorial about the urban beekeeping legalization measure to be voted on by the City Council in the coming months. Having advocated for motions in support of urban beekeeping (passed in 16 neighborhood councils thus far), we are pleased to see the press coverage in support of the motion.

The LA Times explains, "Los Angeles is honeybee heaven. The warm Southern California climate and long growing seasons provide year-round food for bees. The city's trees, flowers and flora are largely free of pesticides. It's the perfect place for backyard beekeeping — except that beekeeping is not legal here."

With the growing threat of colony collapse disorder on agricultural bee populations, legalization may be essential to avoiding total calamity.

Following the recent decision by the P.L.U.M. Committee to research management of residential beekeeping, we are hopeful about the upcoming City Council vote.
