Honeybee population flourishes in D.C.

Honeybee population flourishes in D.C. | Farming, Forests, Water & Fishing (No Petroleum Added) | Scoop.it
Nonprofit organizations install hives on green rooftops in Washington.

 

In many parts of the country, honeybee populations are crashing, devastated by parasites and the mysterious Colony Collapse Disorder. But in the District, the plant-pollinating insects are thriving, according to local bee maven Jeff Miller.

“D.C. has a really green canopy, and so the bees tend to do very well here. In fact, better in the city than we’ve seen them do in the suburbs or even out in the countryside,” said Miller, who runs two apiary organizations, the nonprofit D.C. Honeybees and the for-profit Georgetown Honeybees. The latter has helped about 200 people and organizations become beekeepers since it began in 2010.

“The bees we have in the countryside sit in areas where there a lot of cash crops being grown, like corn or soybeans,” Miller said. “They don’t provide much nutrition for the bees. There’s not a lot of nectar. The city has a lot of trees, and trees provide a significant amount of pollen and nectar when the bees need it in the spring.”

“In the city you have flowers and window boxes that tend to bloom all season long, whereas in the countryside you’ve got crops that tend to bloom very quickly at one time. And then there’s nothing left for the bees to forage on.”

Wild at Heart

Wild at Heart | Farming, Forests, Water & Fishing (No Petroleum Added) | Scoop.it
The fight against genetically modified wild rice in Native American cultures.

 

The Ojibwe people of the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota have been harvesting wild rice from rivers and lakes for centuries. Each fall, the Wild Rice Moon hits the north country, and the Ojibwe take part in the age-old tradition of ricing. Canoeing in pairs, they navigate the rice beds while they tenderly bend the water grass and knock the grains into their canoes. They believe wild rice is a gift from the Creator to the Anishinaabeg, a symbol of their indigenous land.
