Out of sight of local authorities and neighbors, amateur beekeepers are setting out to propagate bees all across Washington, DC. From rooftops to enclosed porches, these beekeepers’ hives are hidden armies pollinating the city’s flowers and helping to sustain the threatened honeybee population. The Capital Buzz follows Washingtonian Jeff Miller as he builds hives, raises bee colonies, and advances the growing urban beekeeping movement. Set against the devastating collapse of bee colonies around the world, this beekeeper is on a mission to bring these vital pollinators to rooftops throughout the city.
