Vote: Is Beekeeping the Next Big Thing?

We are abuzz with this week’s Next Big Thing! Beekeeping is the practice of maintaining beehives and collecting honey. It’s not only a sweet hobby, but it also helps the environment. The bee population has been on the decline in the past decade due to disease, pesticides and parasites, and beekeeping is one way to help reverse this trend.

Students at this New York school decided to take action and started their very own beekeeping club on the roof of their school, housing 150, 000 honeybees! They are having so much fun with it and encourage more schools and people to take up the hobby.

So what do you think — is beekeeping the Next Big Thing? Vote and tell us your opinion in the comments section below. Or submit your video comments to nbt@channelone.com. We will feature the results of the poll and some of your comments on the show!
