Learn How to Make a Pollinator Garden

We had a tremendous turnout for our "Learn how to make a pollinator garden" demonstration at uptown Oxford's EarthFest! Participants learned how to plant and care for black-eyed susans and purple cone flowers, and received a starter kit with the tools needed to maintain their gardens.

 

Many thanks to Dr. Michele Simmon's Environmental Communications students who wrote the grant, Duke Energy for their generous funding of the event, David Prytherch who led the demonstration with great enthusiasm, our student volunteers from Miami University, and all the gardeners -- young and old -- who made this event a huge success.

Inspired by our pollinator garden event in April, Susan and Dave from Toronto created a gorgeous pollinator garden in their own yard. Filled with around 55 different pollinators, their garden will be a haven for butterflies and bees. What a beautiful tribute to Becca, and a wonderful way to use the space you have to make a positive impact on our Earth. It’s all about doing what you can from where you are right now!

 

As Becca would say, “Go outside no matter what and sit. Wait a while until you sigh and can’t think of anything else. Have a good time.”

 

Update 6/18/2018

Susan and Dave’s BEEPS pollinator garden is growing beautifully at their home in Toronto! Their garden has about 55 different species of pollinators, including echinacea, sage, lavender, bee balm, delphiniums, mountain phlox, and creeping phlox. Dave was visited by a swallow tail butterfly that followed him closely around their back garden – it made them think of Becca.
