Pollinator Friendly Demonstration Gardens
Stengle, Jennifer J.
A pollinator-friendly landscape can be a beautiful and functional asset to the home and can provide forage, nesting sites, and shelter for pollinators and other beneficial insects. We created an attractive and well-managed demonstration garden that invites the public to observe plant-pollinator interactions up close. Our garden is easy to access and is in a highly visible space in Putnam County. This curated space includes interpretive signage that offers learning opportunities even when CCE educators or Master Gardener Volunteers are not present. This garden demonstrates easy practices that visitors can adopt at home to increase pollinator diversity and abundance.
