Made by Hand, The Beekeeper

Made by Hand is a great series of short films about people who devote themselves to the art and craft of making or doing something well. The knife maker video posted at kottke.org is a fine example. This episode is about Brooklyn beekeeper Megan Paska.

Local farmer Megan Paska has witnessed beekeeping as it morphed from an illegal (and possibly crazy) habit to a sustainable, community-supported skill. Mirroring beekeeping’s own ascendance, she found more than just a living: “This is the first time in my life when I’ve just felt absolutely on the right path.”

    If it wasn’t banned in my neighborhood, I’d be a beekeeper. Ever since I’ve seen this video, I can’t stop watching it. Of course, I have to watch Chuck Testa first.
