CABQ Public Apiary Proposal - Request for Input

I'm searching for input on how to propose the creation of a publicly accessible apiary to CABQ.  Given the importance that bees play in the success of agricultural economies and the environment as a whole, I feel that getting support from the city for one or more strategically located public apiaries should be a reasonable goal.  Unfortunately, I don't know who to approach within the city government to even begin the process towards approval.  So, I'm reaching out to the community with hopes…See More

I am hoping…See More
