I live in Salem. However, my yard is clean of all pesticides and herbicides, and my neighbors are conscientious about that, too. I love gardening and have flowers that bloom at different times spring through fall. I am also creating a meadow for the first time this year in my front yard. (OK, a very small meadow). I'd be very happy to have a beehive in my back yard. If you are interested in placing a beehive in my yard, or know of anyone who is, please message me via reply. Thank you for being bee keepers!
