BluSeed Studios Garden

While many folks were likely celebrating the warm weekend this 4th of July, the Adirondack Pollinator Project was hard at work installing one of our largest installments to date at BlueSeed Studios in Saranac Lake! We are so thankful for the volunteers that came out to help us for this garden install, including a few gentlemen from St. Joseph’s who were incredibly enthusiastic over the course of the two days of prepping and planting. We were able to plant a variety of native shrub, trees and flowering plants including ninebark, elderberry, mountain mint and a few varieties of perennial grasses as part of their initiative to revamp their landscaping and parking area.

The building where the studio currently resides originated as a hardware store and later a  train warehouse, given its close proximity to the railroad. However, in 2001, the property was purchased by Carol Marie Vossler and its transformation began. The studio now boasts a board of 14 dedicated members who are “passionate in their efforts to connect the community to the arts. BlueSeed offers all sorts of community events from workshops to concerts while also operating as a space for local artists to showcase their work through exhibitions. 

The Pollinator Project could not be more thrilled about this collaboration and we are so excited to watch these plants grow and serve as an educational space to spread awareness of the importance of pollinators in our ecosystem! Make sure to check out the plants the next time you’re at BlueSeed for any one of their amazing events!
