Bees keep Minneapolis City Hall buzzing

Minneapolis City Hall is home to bee hives brought in with an eye toward conservation, and demonstrating that bees can be kept in very urban spaces. 

Bees, which are good for the health and productivity of plants, are increasingly threatened by pesticides and other dangers. Urban hives are good for local gardens, and of course, for producing tasty honey.

The original Minneapolis City Hall hive and bees were donated last year, and they've already split into a second hive, which volunteer bee keepers expect to get up to 150 pounds of honey out of this fall. 

So, who wants to see honey bees at the Tacoma Municipal Building?
