Middle School Students worked together to plan, plant, and tend our pollinator garden. Audrey Hillman, a local Master Gardener, helped us decide what to plant. She donated plants from her own garden: Wild Bee Balm, Anise Hyssop, Giant Yellow Hyssop, and Sedum. The garden has not only been a refuge for pollinators, it has also allowed students in all grades to learn about the importance of pollinators.
