City Center's Response to COVID-19
City Center has new neighbors! We’re proud to take part in the movement for a more eco-conscious city by installing a beehive on The Grill’s patio in City Club! Our beehive will be home to thousands of bees. Our new colleagues are pollinating the urban flora that surrounds us this summer. At the end of the season, we’ll harvest their honey and share it with our community.
What about stings, you ask? No need to fret! Bees really aren’t interested in human beings. They have one goal, and one goal only: to collect nectar and pollen from flowers within a 3-mile radius of their hive and bring it back to ensure the colony’s development.
Plus, bees die when they sting. It causes them to lose their stinger and a part of their abdomen - meaning they really have no interest in doing so, unless they feel their colonys threatened.
Our project is in collaboration with Alvéole, a social beekeeping company that has been around since 2013. They have partnered with hundreds of schools and companies like ours on beekeeping projects. Each hive creates greater ecological awareness, allowing city dwellers to reconnect with nature and adjust their sense of responsibility towards the environment. This season, we will discover the ties that bind us to bees and the flora and fauna that surround us, right here in the city.
