I was at a farewell get-together in Fountain City last Friday and discovered an important and interesting fact: one of the administrators at my university has also been exploring beekeeping and pondering the placement of hives on campus. My university was once a county "poor farm" and still has remnants of an old orchard. This administrator has thought of "reagriculturalizing" (in a sustainable fashion) some of these areas on campus and bees are in his plan. He has signed up for the U of M's extension course and is also collecting some equipment, atleast to place on his own farm. We have begun talking about our own plans and how to work together on it. More on this later.
