“No Mow May”, which originated in the United Kingdom in 2019, was initiated in our area at the club level by the Rotary Club of Kingston-Frontenac. Subsequently, in collaboration with the Kingston Club, it soon grew to involve the City of Kingston and Rotary District 7040. In 2023, many thousands of residents participated, together with municipalities, by leaving lawns, gardens and selected parklands unmowed through the end of May in order to better support the bee population by creating an improved habitat for pollination.
In the City of Kingston, by the initial proclamation of a Motion in Council, No Mow May will remain in effect for two more years (through 2025).
