Georgian gains “Bee Campus” designation


Georgian College has gained “Bee Campus” designation from Bee City Canada for its work supporting pollinators. The designation is based on a number of criteria, including efforts towards creating, maintaining, and improving habitats for pollinators. Georgian introduced two beehives to its roof this year, and last year built a Bee Lodge to provide homes for native pollinators. Supporting the pollinators also helps make the campus a learning laboratory. “We’re trying to connect culinary and hospitality with where it all comes from,” said Georgian Dean of Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation Bryan Hunt. “Restaurants can’t exist without the agriculture industry, and neither can hotels. And so really it’s a matter of demonstrating that entire cycle of consumption back to reuse.”
