Community Pollinator Gardens – Application Now Open!

AdkAction’s Adirondack Pollinator Project is proud to announce the Mobile Pollinator Garden Trailer and community pollinator garden project made possible with a grant from Flow Hive. We welcome schools, libraries, hospitals, municipal parks, and others to apply to work with us to build new pollinator gardens around the Adirondack Park.

A pollinator garden is one planted mostly with flowers that provide nectar or pollen for a broad range of pollinating insects.  Native flowering plants are best, and pesticides are forbidden.  These habitats can be beautiful and they attract birds and other wildlife in addition to pollinators. The new roving trailer will save time, energy and resources to install community pollinator gardens, AdkAction said, by providing an enclosed trailer containing all necessary tools, supplies, mulch, some soil or compost, plus seeds and plants.

We plan to engage hundreds of volunteers to create up to 40 community pollinator gardens over two years. If you would like to apply to work with us on your pollinator garden project or idea, please fill out the application at this link.
