The Problem

We live in an area with a lot of new construction. When making room for the new housing developments a lot of pollinator habitat is being mowed down and destroyed. We would like to establish a butterfly garden, including milkweed as a predominate plant, to offer a safe haven for butterflies.

Our Plan

We have an old, very abandoned plot of land behind our building. It is in need of some TLC but would be the perfect place for a pollinator garden. We have already started to work on this project be getting donations from local providers including dirt and plants. We would like to add a border to the garden as well as some mulch. If possible we would also like to expand the garden to be able to have more flowers along with a place for students to sit and observe the wildlife that come to visit.
