Urban and Small-Scale Beekeeping

This workshop will give attendees insight on how New Jersey non-profits incorporate beekeeping into urban agriculture and community development work. It will provide information on the challenges of beekeeping in an urban environment, but also highlight educational opportunities that can be utilized to discuss broader themes of food security and environmental restoration. This workshop will also be an opportunity to discuss best management practices for beekeeping in populated areas as well as how the NJ Department of Agriculture’s proposed regulations will affect small-scale beekeepers.
