I'm a public school teacher in South New Jersey who started a beekeeping project with parents and students.  We've had our hives now for 2 years. I started out with a thimble's worth of knowledge and now have a pint's worth. But we took 60 pounds of honey last year and made enough money by selling to keep the project going.  Would be interested in hearing from any beekeepers--and especially those from my area.  You can email me at sgraffwriter@gmail.com

Wonderful! I love to see young people being involved with bees. I give a few talks at public schools around here every year and am not allowed to bring in an observation hive due to liabilities. Heck, some schools won't even allow me to bring in honey samples!.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
