Beekeeping classes in New York City were brimming with students this spring, partly because of publicity after a city council bill was introduced to legalize beekeeping.
On one Sunday in April the student beekeepers gathered for a live demonstration of hiving.
Afterwards they got two boxes; one with about 20,000 live bees, and another smaller one with the queen bee inside.
National Geographic has a video report, including an appearance by an underground beekeeper who is allergic to bee stings! Link -via Digg
