Windfields Farm


UOIT Pollinator Tour

UOIT is opening its Windfields Farm doors to community members and students to showcase the recent additions to our Pollinator Project. This #GoGreenStayBlue initiative enables the bee populations to recover after a rapid decline in the last several years due to habitat loss and pesticide use. The tour will feature the newly hydro-seeded 1.2 Ha Pollinator Garden, our 17 honey-producing hives maintained by Royal Meadows Farms, and our recycled material Solitary Bee Hotels. Our expert apiarists will be on site to give a Beekeeping 101 talk, answer questions, and allow you to look at our hive window box. Come prepared with all of the bee questions you may have and maybe some cash for sweet honey made by Royal Meadows! Bee-aware if you have bee allergies, as we will be close to bee hives during this tour!

Directions to house 22: Turn West on Britannia Avenue West off Simcoe Street.  Proceed through first round about and take your first left.  Then turn right and you will see House #22 ahead on your left.
