The Brooklyn Grange suffered an incredible loss, as their apiary washed out with the high tide during Hurricane Sandy.
Started in 2010, the Brooklyn Grange created and continues to nurture a farm on the rooftops of New York City. Today, they have over 2 acres of gardens, and have sold over 40,000 pounds of vegetables to restaurants, CSA members and at weekly farm stands.
Last year, they were able to purchase new bees from a beekeeper in Pennsylvania, and the bees went to work in their new home, producing honey and settling in nicely.
