Paul Taylor has e-mailed me to say that there will be the monthly meeting at his place (Kootenay Bee Supplies at Flying Leap Farm) this coming Sunday from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. A topic that some people have indicated they would like to talk about is urban beekeeping and starting some actions to have local bylaws changed. Nelson, Castlegar, and Trail all have a bylaw prohibiting bees yet there are “guerilla” beekeepers in all three cities. Perhaps you have some ideas?
Bring some Christmas goodies to share if you are of the of the baking persuasion!!

Re. changing bylaws: the City of Vancouver’s policy is very progressive, and includes additional information about the value of urban beekeeping to biodiversity and food security. They have 2 hives on the roof of city hall! A good model to follow, I think. See — http://vancouver.ca/people-programs/beekeeping.aspx
