Our friends at the Acadia Garden and Art Society need our help. They are in a contest for funding to expand their nectar & pollen rich native flower beds! With your vote, they can expand this great community resource!
Worldwide, pollinator populations are in decline. At the Acadia Community Garden & Art Society, we’ve made it a priority to raise awareness around this issue by creating a pollinator-friendly habitat and growing space for all of our neighbours, whether they walk on 6 legs or 2.
Our focus is on producing nectar & pollen rich native flowers and providing suitable shelter for pollinator species in our area. This grant money would allow us to dramatically increase the size of our native flower beds, to install mason bee houses, watering & puddling stations (what could be cuter than a butterfly puddling pool?), and to produce educational signage that explains the importance the of the role which pollinators play, both in our community and in the world as a whole.
