Chazy Pollinator Garden

Chazy Presbyterian Church is our latest garden site, where the Pollinator Project was able to create some awesome new pollinator habitat on July 10th. We had six amazing volunteers join us from the church community as well as AdkAction’s very own Kiana French, our Farmacy Project Coordinator. 

The garden was planted in a semicircle shape in order to best accommodate for a memorial bench that will be placed at the front of the site. The bench was donated in order to commemorate, Emily Castine, a beloved member of the church who was an avid gardener. The bench is positioned to face the pond and school across the road, so that passersby and pollinators enjoying the plants can also take in a beautiful view! We planted a variety of native wildflowers including bee balm, sneezeweed, New York aster and some wild petunias. Thanks again to Betsy Brooks and all of the wonderful Presbyterian Women who came out to help with this installment!
