San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina
The new bees at the Marriott, near the Marina in San Diego, were installed last week. Bookmark this page and come back to see updates. The plan is to plant bee-friendly plants around the property and on the roof top. We hope there will be enough forage in the area to provide for the bees, but extra plants to provide the pollen and nectar the bees need can only help.
The Marriott is enthusiastic about helping bees and the environment. Clearly a couple of beehives on a roof in San Diego is, in itself, not going to solve the current Colony Collapse Disorder issue (CCD). However it is a valuable gesture in the quest to highlight the problem and support the education of the general public.
It’s great when people are inspired to keep bees themselves, but it’s also vital that people are aware of what is going on and accept that beekeeping is crucial to our food supply.
