High-Rise Honey Video

Together with Stratus Properties and Canyon Johnson Urban Fund II, Austin based non-profit, Central Texas Bee Rescue has installed a bee apiary atop the 37th floor of the W Austin. As the first roof top apiary in Austin, the project has transformed the property’s barren rooftop into food-producing real estate, ultimately benefitting the local community. The millions of rescued and rehabilitated honeybees pollinate nearby Lady Bird Lake and produce the organic honey that’s being integrated into the menu at the hotel’s onsite TRACE restaurant, the craft cocktails served at the hotel’s bars and into treatments at the hotel’s onsite AWAY Spa.

    Hi Christian,
    This is really a well crafted video on the W apiary .
    I am planning to do some private voluntary fund raising for CTXBee Rescue. We are going to fund a grant writer & intern for CTXBee Rescue . Could you possible contact me regarding a short video that could be made to target the donors I know that would very likely contribute to the grant writer & intern fund ? I was thinking that a video featuring Walter & others explaining the shared vision we have for saving the bees . Additionally we are turning to the Austin Travis County ReEntry Roundtable to find the intern candidate to be trained to write grants and to build the CTXBee Rescue business plan . That intern candidate is an ex offender who is out now , a military veteran & in college. We hope to some day soon link up ex offenders with the rescue effort and train them to bee wrangle ( to paraphrase Walter ) . I plan to send an email to my contacts ,and if we could make this video and link it to my fund raising that would be great . Again this is a voluntary effort and 100 % of the money I raise will go the CTXBee Rescue Grant writing effort .
    Please email if this might be doable .
