National Urban Beekeeping Day is celebrated annually on July 19. The day is set aside to celebrate the practice of keeping bee colonies in urban areas.
Other names for urban beekeeping are hobby beekeeping and ‘backyard beekeeping. Apiculture refers to the practice of keeping and maintaining bees.
At a time, it was prohibited to keep bees in urban areas, but recent discoveries show that bees kept in the city are healthier than those kept in the country and that bees have economic and environmental growth.
