Québec City Convention Centre Set to Welcome Alvéole Bees

Food and Beverage Sustainability

Bees will be buzzing on the roof of the Québec City Convention Centre this summer! To encourage pollination in the neighborhood, the Convention Centre called on the services of Alvéole, an organization that promotes urban agriculture and its positive effects on the environment.

Alvéole will install and maintain the bee colonies and extract the honey, allowing the Convention Centre to harvest 10 kilos of its own, pesticide-free honey at the end of the season. The Convention Centre will receive the hives in June.

The Alvéole team will also hold training workshops for Convention Centre employees in order to pique their interest in beekeeping.
