I was so scared the first time I installed a package (alone) and then so amazed when it worked like it was supposed to in the bee books. Now packages and swarm catching are my favorite beekeeping activities!!

Jay -

My apiary is in an old apple orchard.  it is part of the orchard that is not maintained and the trees are all overgrown.  

The city of Leominster owns the orchard and uses the active part for apples, pumpiks, squash.    The city bought it to preserve open space.  the previous owners were going to sell it to developers to create 300 + houses

Excellent save by the town! There is a farmers field right around the corner from me (about 300 yards from Meriam's corner historic site) that the farmer wants to sell to a developer. The town has right of first refusal but of course doesn't have the money to buy all of the land that comes up for sale in town (farmland I mean). So there may be another 25 house development near Meriam's corner in another couple of years! cry

It always stinks to see historic land destroyed.

Jay -

There is a lot Concord can do to save their land as open space.  Leominster spend $4.75M in 2000 to save the farm. The key is to have a cooperative seller and a town that wants to preserve it.  There needs to be community support for it.

The Trustees of Reservations can help cities keep land and maintain it.
