Event Details

Come celebrate the wonderful world of native bees!

On Saturday November 1, 2014, Farms at Work will present a full day workshop designed for farmers, landowners and concerned citizens. Pollination Biologist, Susan Chan will outline the fundamentals of pollination, as well as habitat requirements for pollinators and beneficial insects. Case studies will be presented, and strategies for mitigating threats to pollinators will be proposed.

Susan has been invited to give presentations to thousands of people across Ontario, and her extensive research is inspiring farmers and landowners to implement pollinator conservation plans on their own properties.

Our special guest, Dr. Rosana Pellizzari, Medical Officer of Health for Peterborough City and County, will speak to recent research completed by Public Health Ontario on neonicotinoid pesticides.

Participants will each receive a copy of Farms at Work’s A Landowners’ Guide to Conserving Native Pollinators in Ontario, and will spend time building nests for cavity-dwelling bees. 

There will also be ample time to visit the Pollinator Exhibition, where participants can interact with stewardship organizations and regional businesses that provide pollinator-friendly plant material and services to landowners. If you operate a native plant nursery, or are part of a stewardship organization, and are interested in becoming an exhibitor, please let us know!

Spots will fill up quickly for this exciting workshop, so make sure to get your tickets early! Landowner Guides, bee nests and lunch are included in ticket prices. For more information, contact: jay@farmsatwork.ca  |  (705) 743-7671.   


We'd like to formally thank and recognize the generous support of the Peterborough Foundation, without whom this event would not be possible.
