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!

Farm delivery! 👩🏻‍🌾 You may see our farm coordinator biking around Wolfville this summer and fall with a trailer full of produce. Yesterday it was used to transport our seedlings 🌱 from the K.C. Irving Center greenhouse down to the farm. See if you can spot our garden coordinator biking delicious veggie up to Wheelock Dining Hall this fall 🍂 🚴🏻‍♀️
We’ve been lucky with two good days of weather in a row. Fingers crossed for another one tomorrow! Today we rotated our compost piles and set up two new compost bins. These were graciously donated to the farm by Environmental Sustainability students Chelsey and Daniella! The soil is just dry enough to start planting out some of our seedlings. Today we transplanted swiss chard, cabbage, and kale! 🥬
Happy Sunday! It looks like we have some sunshine this coming week 🌤. This means our cabbage, kale and swiss chard will finally be transplanted into the garden! 🥬
