Brooklyn's Bureau of Common Goods is a film and digital content studio whose "Made by Hand" short film series profiles craftspeople who make things by hand -- "sustainably, locally, and with a love of their craft." The latest installment, directed by Keith Ehrlich, centers around Megan Paska, a Brooklyn-area farmer who embodies the locavore movement of keeping things fresh and local. She's kept bees for four years, and seen the activity transition from an illegal enterprise to a community-supported endeavor. On a personal level, beekeeping has given her a sense of purpose and a feeling of connectivity to the world. Hear Megan's inspiring story in the video below.
