Bee Sustainable

To showcase the amazing powers of pollinators and encourage us all to give bees a chance, Executive Restaurant Chef Adam Middleton has created this feature menu for ARC with more than a dozen ingredients that require pollination. A $5 donation from each meal will benefit local non-profit Hives for Humanity.

Bees are the most effective animal pollinators on earth and are responsible for the pollination of one-third of the food we eat. Each winter, loss and fragmentation of habitat leaves hundreds of thousands of bees without space to nest. Pollinator bee hotels are designed to attract, support and protect native, lost and solitary bees by replicating their natural nesting sites and creating much needed habitat. 

Fairmont Waterfront has been a summer home for honey bees since 2008, producing around 200 lbs of honey annually from our rooftop apiary.  In 2014, we were the first Fairmont hotel to introduce mason bees to our garden and with the help of our local partners at Hives for Humanity through the Pollinator Corridor Project we were able to place 27 mason bee houses across Vancouver’s Downtown East Side.  In 2015 we added a pollinator hotel, our ‘bee and bee,’ to create even more natural habitat for indigenous wild bees.
