I am in San Francisco and will bee so happy to have a hive in my tiny city backyard. I have worked with my Father for 7 or so years with his bees up in Sacramento, but this will be my first solo endeavour!
My daughter found the FlowHive campaign and it took very little time to see that this was, for me, the way to go. We live in a tiny Edwardian with no garage, Dealing with extracting was just not something I was willing to take on. And schlepping to Sacramento with my supers to use my Father's set up? Yeah, I don't THINK so ; -P
I am hoping that Californian Bee Keepers will, in the tradition of our great state, step up to adopt new and innovative technology and lead the way for all those 'Hive Bound' bee keepers who are sure we are all crazy! I figure that here, in the FlowHive Forums, I am in good company!
Glad to be here!
