Earth Day at the Ritz Carlton

Posted by Joanne Young on April 21, 2010 3 Comments

What an exciting day! Today was our official rollout at the Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte. Last week, we placed two hives on their rooftop garden. Today the Ritz held a special press-conference to promote this new “green” initiative. There were a lot of questions about the life of a honeybee and how they produce honey. The weather was great, sunny and warm, so the bees were very busy pollinating the sedum, vegetables and herb garden they now call home.

Please come check us out tomorrow from 10am until 3pm in the open parking lot at 3rd & Tryon. The TOP CHEF TOUR will be taping cooking demonstrations during the day featuring local farmers and products.

Learn more about the Ritz and see our bees at MSNBC and Charlotte Observer.

Watch Randall on Charlotte’s FOX News Rising Fox News Rising. Be patient – we’re in the second segment!

This local honey is absolutely delicious! If you have allergies, take a teaspoon a day of local Charlotte honey. You will feel better!

I recommend it highly!

Joanne and Randall, I met you both today at the Ritz Carlton with my 5th graders. I did not see your email address on the business card, but I wanted to touch base with you so we had contact for future educational partnerships. Thank you again for your presentation with the students today; they absolutely loved it! Their teacher even had them teaching the other students when they got back about what they learned about bees! Thank you again, Adam

Thanks for your participation in this wonderful program at the Ritz-Carlton, and for all you do for bees and beekeeping in the Charlotte area.
