This week’s Marin Independent Journal features the story of beekeeper Nicole Perullo as she fights a Corte Madera order to remove her bee hives.
I’m a novice beekeeper, and was first inspired to keep bees after hearing beekeeper Gerald Cooper speak a few years ago at the Do Lectures in Wales:
Gerald inspired me with his talk on “how fantastic bees are and how we’ve got a problem, not with bees, but with ourselves, because we’re losing it as far as our relationship to the natural world”. You can see the whole talk here.
Nicole is off to meet with the Corte Madera town counsel meeting on Tuesday, May 17th at 5:00pm at Counsel Chambers in Town Hall. If any of you are in the Bay Area, I encourage you to give a voice to the debate there. Or even just weigh in on the issue at the Marin IJ Daily Poll.
