Operation Pollinator On-Farm
The on-farm component of Operation Pollinator is focused on enhancing biodiversity on the farm, providing participants the opportunity to redirect land considered to be lower in productivity to the establishment of pollinator-friendly habitats for bees and other insects. Operation Pollinator sites provide critical habitat to pollinators, improving biodiversity and soil health.
For example, in a program running between 2017 - 2019, we provided the tools and agronomic advice to create essential habitats on 181 on-farm sites across Canada in collaboration with the Soil Conservation Council of Canada (SCCC) and provincial delivery partners. In 2021 and 2022, Operation Pollinator expanded its footprint in Prince Edward Island through a partnership with the PEI Potato Board.
Whether you're interested in creating a habitat or want more information on the program we're here to help. Send us your contact information and we'll be in touch.
