Fleming College Helps Feed City of Kawartha Lakes Community

City of Kawartha Lakes, ON – (Aug 10, 2022) – Good things are growing at Fleming College.

The United Way City of Kawartha Lakes has opened a farm stand at Edwin Binney’s Community Garden in Lindsay, ON., selling fresh, affordable produce grown with the help of Fleming students and faculty.

The stand, located at 50 Mary Street W., runs each Tuesday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. throughout the growing season while supplies last. Freshly harvested veggies, fruits and herbs will be available for purchase.

Fleming’s Sustainable Agriculture program, based at Fleming’s Frost Campus, and United Way City of Kawartha Lakes have been developing the garden since 2019.

“This garden is a living lab providing our students with an invaluable, hands-on education and an experience that travels far outside the classroom,” said Fleming College President Maureen Adamson. “The work they are doing in Edwin Binney’s Community Garden benefits not only the students but the entire region. As many homes struggle with rising grocery bills, Fleming students are helping to supply fresh, nutritious food to the community.”

The garden plot was once an empty, unused lot owned by Crayola Canada.

In just four years, Fleming’s Sustainable Agriculture diploma and post-graduate and Ecosystem Management students have helped turn the once vacant lot into a thriving community garden with a robust irrigation system and more than 100 fruit trees.

In its first year, Fleming students and faculty with the Sustainable Agriculture Technician program helped produced 5,500 lbs. of fresh produce. Last year that yield increased to 16,264 lbs. of healthy fruits and vegetables.

Much of that produce makes its way to 20 agencies and 10 foodbanks throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes. The United Way, supported by Fleming College, has also implemented three pilot projects which provide produce to nearly 300 people living in rent-geared-to-income housing who are identified as being at risk for food insecurity.

The garden also provides co-op placements for students and has created employment opportunities for summer students.

Fleming College, Brock University Create New Post-Secondary Pathway

Peterborough, ON – (August 2, 2022) – Students interested in achieving a degree in Adult Education can now do so through a new articulation agreement between Fleming College and Brock University.  

The agreement creates a streamlined route from Fleming’s General Arts and Science-University Transfer program to Brock’s Bachelor of Education (BEd) in Adult Education program. Eligible students will receive five credits toward a 15-credit BEd degree, making it possible for full-time students to complete the program in two years instead of three. The program is also offered part time.  

The pathway is available to alumni of Fleming’s transfer program who graduated as far back as 2004.  

“Supporting students is our priority, whether they are furthering their education immediately after graduation or pursuing a new adventure years after leaving us to enhance their careers,” said Fleming College President Maureen Adamson. “We are proud to be working with Brock University to offer our students more opportunities to achieve a degree.”  

Brock’s Adult Education courses are offered online. Those with a certificate or degree in Adult Education can work in corporate training, college and post-secondary institutions, and health-care and management programs. Others may be developing their knowledge and skills in workplace settings such as teaching, coaching, mentoring, training, and adult skill development.  

“Brock University is always looking for ways to enhance program options for students, whether they’re in the beginning stages of their academic journey or returning to further develop their skills in support of their career,” said Interim President and Vice-Chancellor Lynn Wells. “Through our partnership with Fleming College, we’re pleased to offer this new pathway to expand opportunities for Brock learners.”

Fleming College Celebrates Diverse Perspectives on Canada Day

Fleming College will be closed July 1, and we wish everyone a safe and inclusive Canada Day. While this is a day of celebration, it is also a time to reflect, honour and recognize the original people of this land, Indigenous People. Fleming recognizes the invaluable contributions and diverse perspectives as we continue to work toward Truth and Reconciliation, we encourage everyone to start this Canada Day acknowledging all perspectives and how we can each contribute to our shared society. 

Please see below some ways and readings to engage and learn more about truth and reconciliation:

Fleming College Launches New Respiratory Therapy Program

Peterborough ON – (June 22, 2022) Fleming College is adding a new diploma program to its School of Health and Community Services.  

Registration for the Respiratory Therapy Advanced Diploma has already begun. Classes will take place at the College’s Sutherland Campus, in the purpose-built respiratory therapy lab with new, state-of-the-art equipment.  

“Fleming is once again expanding our School of Health and Community Services to include programs that address a crucial need in our health care sector,” said Fleming College President Maureen Adamson. “There is a projected shortage of qualified respiratory therapists over the next decade in our region, in our province and across our country. The COVID-19 pandemic showed us how important it is to address that shortage.” 

The six-semester interactive program begins in January 2023, reducing the program time from three years to two. During their time at Fleming students will learn how to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate safe, therapeutic cardio-respiratory interventions for a wide array of patients and clients. Students will graduate with the knowledge, skills, and clinical judgement to deliver optimal cardio-respiratory care.  

Two 420-hour field placements take place during the final two semesters. Students will be able to complete the Indigenous Perspectives Designation offered in this program, adding a competitive advantage to their resumes.  

The Fleming program has been developed to meet the National Competency Framework for respiratory therapists. Program graduates will be prepared for the Canadian Board of Respiratory Care national certification examinations to become members of the College of Respiratory Therapists of Ontario.  

Respiratory therapists are able to work in hospitals, long-term care homes, hyperbaric clinics with a family health team or work in a home, private business or in an independent practice. Employment income for respiratory therapists averages about $78,000 per year in the Peterborough region.

Alumnus Of Distinction Award Recipient Celebrated for Perseverance

Peterborough, ON – (June 10, 2022) – Fleming College is pleased to announce that Tyler Scott, a Co-op Diploma Apprenticeship, Culinary graduate from the class of 2011, is the recipient of the 2022 Alumnus of Distinction Award. This prestigious award is presented to an alumnus who attains outstanding career success and professional achievement.

Scott was the owner and executive chef of Rare Restaurant located in Peterborough, Ontario. In a time where the COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the restaurant industry, Tyler and his team at Rare worked hard to pivot through various closures.

In April 2022, Tyler and his wife Kassy, announced the news of an exciting new chapter and will be launching Rare Escape: Outdoor Guided Culinary Experiences. The pair have a passion for the outdoors and are excited to offer this unique culinary experience in Peterborough & The Kawarthas. 

 “Working in the restaurant/hospitality industry is mentally and physically exhausting. It’s taken us a little while, but we are finally starting to get a grasp on this lifestyle. Our way of recharging has always been to escape into nature. ‘Rare Escape’ is our inspiration to keep pushing forward,” Tyler said.

The traditional Rare restaurant will also transform into a Culinary Arts Studio, a space to host an array of different events aimed at bringing the community together through a love for local ingredients. The studio will host pop-up food events, community events, backdoor goods for retail (frozen meals, preserves and dehydrated food), culinary seminars taught by Chef Tyler Scott, local collaborations, intimate tasting dinners and more.

“Fleming College is proud to have contributed to Tyler’s successes over the years,” said Fleming College President Maureen Adamson. “His dedication to his craft and community makes him an exemplary alumnus and a great example of what Fleming is all about. We wish him the best of luck in his next adventure and can’t wait to see what he achieves next.”

Tyler will be honoured with the Alumnus of Distinction Award during Fleming College’s Convocation on June 17.
