A group of local volunteers will be hosting an Open House at the Kemptville Campus greenhouses Saturday, January 25, from 10am – 2pm. The Greenhouses are located at 75 Campus Drive, in the AJ Logsdail Centre. The public is welcome.
The Kemptville Campus Education and Community Centre is pleased to announce that the Campus forests have achieved Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Certification through the Eastern Ontario Model Forest’s Forest Certification Program. The announcement was made Friday at the Campus Agroforestry Centre on Bedell Road.
“We are thrilled to achieve this certification,” stated Mayor Nancy Peckford. “Given that over half the Campus lands are covered in forest, this really ensures the viability and sustainability of the forest now and for the future.”
The FSC® is an international, non-profit organization that supports environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests. The FSC® has developed a set of standards that ensure sustainable forest management. Forest owners must indicate their commitment to managing their forest within the FSC® Standards and the Model Forest Policies and Procedures.
The Kemptville Campus woodlot adds 360 acres to the growing list of private woodlots now certified under the EOMF Forest Certification Program. The certification includes both wood and maple syrup harvested from the forest. The Kemptville Campus woodlot is comprised of several forest stands, including mixed hardwood, conifer and maple plantations.
The Kemptville Campus Open House on Saturday 28th September was a big success.

Plans for the Open House at Kemptville Campus are in the final stages. The event is a celebration of 100 Years of Education at the Campus and is happening Saturday, September 28, from 10am – 3pm. Opening ceremonies will take place at 11:30 in front of Purvis Hall.
The event is open to the public and will include historical displays, artifacts and photos, open houses at each of the schools, live re-enactments by former College staff, and a free BBQ lunch and anniversary cake. Dignitaries invited include oldest grads and teachers of the College, representatives of the three school boards on Campus, the Kemptville College Foundation and Kemptville College Alumni Association. As well, MPP Steve Clark and Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, the Honourable Ernie Hardeman, are expected to attend.
The collection of historic artifacts and photos that were stored at the Kemptville Campus have been shared between the Kemptville College Alumni Association and the Kemptville Campus. Ongoing discussions between Mayor Nancy Peckford, Deputy Mayor Jim McManaman, and Alumni representatives led to an agreement of which material would stay on the Campus for historical purposes, and which materials would be transferred to the Alumni.
