Sorry if this has been posted before - great article from NYT about a community garden in North Phila. It is a shame they don't talk about urban beekeeping in the article but the photo is a great shot of a honey super.

"The farm, in the low-income Kensington section, about three miles from the skyscrapers of downtown Philadelphia, also makes its own honey — marketed as “Honey From the Hood” — from a colony of bees that produce about 80 pounds a year. And it makes biodiesel for its vehicles from the waste oil produced by the restaurants that buy its vegetables."

Full article here:

Wow - $650,000 revenue off a 1-acre garden!

Thanks for posting the link.
