Mohawk College has planted a dedicated pollinator-friendly rooftop garden to encourage a healthy pollinator population. The Pollinator Paradise is located on the rooftop patio of the Learning Exchange (H-Wing) at the college's Fennell campus. The new garden is part of a partial green roof and now contains a variety of plants that attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators native to Ontario.
The introduction of a pollinator garden at Mohawk will support local food production and a diverse, healthy plant population while creating teaching and learning opportunities that engage our students and community members.
The project was funded through a $6,000 grant from the World Wildlife Fund. Mohawk College was one of 21 grants from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Canada’s ‘Go Wild’ Community Grants, presented by Telus.
