Organic Hotels in Toronto

Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto, Canada has established a unique way to get customers. It is using its roof. Venture onto the roof and you’ll find an organic garden cared for by the hotel chef, David Garcelon. At present Aubergine, gooseberries and edible flowers are grown on the roof, but he is about to install beehives to enable him to gather the honey. The chef has found guests are now demanding local, fresh, food. The hotel claims it is the first global chain to formally commit to locally grown organic produce as part of its every day menu policy. The “Grown in Ontario” menu is proving to be a great hit. The scheme will also be introduced across the whole chain; this includes the London Savory and New York Plaza Hotel.
