Native Pollinator Garden
Our vision began after the Eco Club attended the Youth Climate Forum on April 3, 2023. The Eco Club worked together to plan a collaborative project that would create a sustainable, native pollinator garden at the front of our school.
The Eco Club measured the available garden beds and assessed the condition of the soil. Students researched native pollinator plant species. Students designed a landscape plan for the native plants. Soil was prepared. Plants were purchased. Students worked to rake, dig, plant and water the native plant species. Students monitor the progress and health of plant species.
Reflection & Celebration
Students did a pre-assessment on the importance of native pollinator plants for the health of our ecosystem. Students researched the negative impact on invasive plant species. Students also learned the negative impact of urban sprawl, loss of green spaces and habitat loss. Students researched native plant species that were good pollinator plants.
The result – the students reflected in their Google Form that, overall, the day was informative, educational and fun.
