The Queen Elizabeth
Montreal’s Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth has installed four beehives on the hotel’s 22nd floor rooftop. A natural extension of the Chef’s organic container vegetable garden, the apiary helps pollinate downtown Montreal’s gardens. The hotel has chosen a local “superbee” variety bred by experts and unofficially called "apis mellifera Quebeca".
About 200,000 "apis mellifera Quebeca" honeybees living in four beehives will produce a honey harvest 3 times a year.
