      The latest buzz in England is for thirty-somethings to
      become urban beekeepers and churn out double the honey
      their rural counterparts do.

      In London, urban beehives have appeared on the roof of the Bank of
      England and on top of the royal family's grocers, Fortnum & Mason in
      Piccadilly, The Times of London reported Tuesday.

      James Hamill owns a honey shop in south London, and told
      the newspaper he has 200 bookings for his beekeeping
      courses this summer with three-quarters from people who
      live in urban areas. Hives sell for about $175, and
      can produce about 60 pounds of honey, which is more
      than double that produced in rural areas because of
      the city's greater variety of flowering plant life, the
      report said.

      While hive-keeping is a good conversation-starter, it isn't
      strenuous -- experts say hives need to be checked only once every
      seven to 10 days when the bees are at their most active between
      April and July.

      The interest has resulted in a surge
      of membership in the British Beekeepers Association,
      which said its numbers have almost doubled to 10,500
      in the past three years.
