Since the spring of 2010 Cotogna’s rooftop has been home to over 100,000 honeybees thanks to the diligent efforts of beekeeper Terry Oxford of UrbanBeeSF.
At Jardinière, we continue to locally source our ingredients. The seasonable vegetables, greens, fruit, and herbs that we craft our dishes with are all grown and cultivated here in California, like the organic vegetables from Santa Cruz, Watsonville, and Marin County, and the fresh fish and natural honey from San Francisco’s own waters and beehives.
The Nature of Cities focuses on ecosystems of people nature and structure. This podcast looks at general global trends in urban beekeeping in Europe and the U.S.
Toxic pesticides are killing honeybees and other pollinators -- and our food supply stands to suffer.
