Thanks to a Thrivent Grant received for our St. Mark Community Garden, we now have a new section called a “pollinator garden”. This garden was designed and planted with specific nectar and pollen producing plants that will attract certain insects known as “pollinators”. Both plants and seeds were planted, including milkweed plants for Monarch butterflies. This garden is located in the southwest area of the Community Garden and should be a beautiful contribution with colorful butterflies visiting.
Thanks to Brent Chapman, Erla Ferry, Gail Frare, Ameilia Morlock, Kiyomi Katow and Kristina Tamm-Finnerud for putting their hands to the earth for this valuable addition to the Community Garden.
