Interest in beekeeping booming

From the article:
"In 20 years, I have not seen the participation in beginner classes that I've seen this year," says Kim Flottum, editor of Bee Culture, who sends samples of his Ohio-based magazine to bee schools. "For the first time in 20 years, I've run out of magazines. Every year, people say, 'Can you send five or 10 or 15?' This year they're saying 30 or 40."

Nj had more begiiners in their courses than ever before. Our club had 17 new members this spring alone.

The class we were in said it was their record for enrollment as well.  I think the final count was close to 30.
