  1. Hey! I Think your rooftop idea is really a great way to use space that would otherwise go unused. I am interested in farming honeybees and rooftops are some of the best places to have the hives. I was interested if you would be willing to let me place a few hives on the roof?

    1. Hi Steven,
      Thanks for the interest in hives on the roof. There is actually already someone using the roof for hives currently. If they ever decide to remove their hives I’ll let you know,
