Indian Lake Public Library Garden
As the summer continues rolling on so do the wheels on our new Mobile Pollinator Garden Trailer, this time making a stop at Indian Lake Public Library! Over ten volunteers from the community came out for the install that took place early on the morning of July 12th. We were able to install three of our honeycomb-shaped raised beds, a design that has become a signature of our garden project. We also planted some milkweed and calico asters in a few planters that had been donated by a community member.
Daisy Kelley also brought along a few monarchs she raised that we were able to release in celebration of the new garden. Daisy is an Indian Lake local expert on the beloved butterflies who educates community members about their importance and helps them raise and release monarchs. We thought it was an awesome way to signify the beginning of the new pollinator habitat and are grateful for the opportunity! We also wanted to give a special thanks to Pete Plumley and Nick LaScala for these fantastic photos, and of course to our wonderful volunteers, especially Susan Rollings who acted as our point person on the project!
Make sure to check out the new planters the next time you’re in town!
