Legalizing Beekeeping in NYC

City Council Member David Yassky has introduced legislation (Intro. No. 920) to legalize beekeeping in New York City. If adopted, New York City would join the cities of Atlanta, Chicago, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, and Vancouver in allowing people to raise honeybees. The legislation is in the Council’s Health Committee but a public hearing has not yet been scheduled. The non-profit Just Food is circulating a petition in favor of the legislation.
