New residence on campus…for bees!

Andrew Collins and Sarah Boudreau assembling the hive.

We are pleased to announce the arrival of our first bee hive at the Acadia Farm. The hive will be used for teaching and research in partnership with the Acadia Beekeeping Club and the Department of Biology. Under the direction of Dr. Dave Shutler and Dr. Kirk Hillier and local beekeepers Kevin Spicer and Perry Brandt, students will learn about the role of bees in agriculture and investigate integrated pest management techniques. Stop by the farm to welcome our newest campus residents and learn about bees!

The Acadia Community Farm began in the spring of 2008 with the vision of providing local, organic produce to the dining hall at Acadia University, while also serving as a community garden. The Farm has grown to become an educational community centre for the exchange of knowledge surrounding gardening, food, and sustainable agriculture.
