Our Projects

Farms at Work began its Native Pollinator Program in 2011.  Our projects focus on education and on-the-ground conservation work. 

We engage in projects that

  1. Raise awareness about the role, diversity and importance of non-honey bee species of pollinators in Ontario;
  2. Raise awareness about threats facing native pollinators in Ontario and to suggest practical ways forward;
  3. Support the creation of safe habitat for pollinators on and around farms in Ontario
