Urban Bee Keeping

One of the goals for the Armond Theatre Restoration, (Note August '14. This may not be the case any more as plans for the Armond Theatre have changed) is a green roof with hopefully bee hives.   A few things need to happen before this idea will be possible but watching this video may help in understanding the reasons for this goal.  The decline of bees is very noticeable and worrisome to those who work in the field of agriculture and horticulture.  For those who drive for a living or travel a lot it would be like seeing a sudden decline of articulated trucks on the highway.  Bees are the pollen distributors which are essential to much of our food supply.
