Fairmont Hotel will be buzzing with bees 

Bees will buzz this Thursday through the historic hallways of the Fairmont Hotel.

The Nob Hill hotel’s executive chef is overseeing the planting of a 1,000-square-foot culinary garden, which on Thursday will become home to four beehives.

The hives are scheduled to be carried, wrapped in burlap, through the hotel’s lobby at 8 a.m. Thursday to the new garden, where they will be installed.

The bees will be free to gather pollen from lavender and other plants in the Fairmont Hotel’s gardens.

“Ultimately,” hotel publicists wrote in a statement Monday, “the homegrown honey will be served to hotel guests as part of The Fairmont’s commitment to serving local, organic, sustainable cuisine.”
