McGill Apicultural Association (SP0101)

Status: ONGOING January 2012 - Fall 2013

There is a chronic problem with student engagement with apiculture at Macdonald Campus.

For such tiny creatures, bees are incredibly important, and not just for your sweet tooth.

These hardworking insects also make beeswax and pollinate almost a third of everything we eat.

Dew Water Harvest (SP0098)

Status: ONGOING Fall 2013 - present

The design of a dew-water harvesting unit as a source of complimentary clean water and for sustainable water resources education on the Macdonald campus is an excellent way to build upon the rain water harvesting system already operating at the Horticulture Research Center.

Rainwater collection can be a remarkable source of freshwater for irrigation and other purposes... the only problem is – it has to rain!
