Along with local food comes local bees. Need that pollination! Didn't know that bees weren't native to the US, and now their numbers are way down due to a couple of mites. They go along with Farmers' Markets and Birkenstocks up in the Bay area. They're even at the White House now. Can't stop a trend like that!
Our trend is behind the Canadians however. Environment Canada has a page on protecting bees and providing a more biodiverse environment in the suburbs and the city, since their regs allow beekeeping in suburbs and cities.
