I need some help from a beekeeper in the Philadelphia area, but I wanted to make sure I gave some background behind this post.
I am a salesman for a high rise window cleaning company. I spend my time on some of the highest roofs in the city of Detroit, and watch my guys do things that only people with the constitution of a crazy person would do. My job is to connect with property managers and building owners. Green is the word of the day, I think we all know that, so I've spearheaded initiatives in my company to embrace green technology and also to join the US Green Building Council.
I've been to many meetings where building owners and property managers have been working at getting LEED credits for their buildings by making them "greener".
I came up with the idea of doing a presentation for the USGBC and BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association) in the Detroit area to introduce them to the concept of urban beekeeping. This would be specifically be pointed at the Green Roof initiative.
I put some feelers out there, and got an response to a Philadelphia architect that is fascinated with the idea. I will be talking with him over the course of a few days here, and would love to recommend a solid Philly beekeeper.
