Location: St. James School, 3217 West Clearfield St., Philadelphia, 19132

Each year the inspector(s) try to visit as many beekeepers as possible during their temporary employment (you can't inspect bees in the winter!). In this way, Austin has become the local expert on how the bees are doing in Philly. Of course he visits other counties too and is able to compare and contrast what he sees in the country vs. the city. (more…)
