Pollinator Protectors


Our vision was to create a beautiful pollinator safe haven at the front of our highschool. We have planted native perennials in an effort to create a safe feeding space for local pollinators. We hope to attact hummingbirds, honeybees and butterflies. We want to educate our students about the importance of pollinators and how to create green spaces for them. We want to encourage others to follow us in creating their own pollinator gardens at home. Through the project we are teaching youth how to garden and how to care for plants that are critical for pollinator survival.


Our action plan was to revitalize our school gardens. We researched native plants and pollinator friendly plants that would thrive in full sun. Students are responsible for planting, watering and weeding the garden beds in the Spring and in the Fall. We use rain barrels to collect water for our gardens. In the Fall students will be responsbile for harvesting and prepping vegetables and herbs for our culinary program. Students are able to paricipate in the full life cycle of plants from seed to fork.

Reflection & Celebration

We are happy at how our pollinator garden has changed the landscape at the front of our school. We celebrate our garden project as an outdoor learning centre for students. Students learn valuable work skills by participating in the garden project. They are able to spend time learning outside in nature about the natural world. Our students care deeply about the natural world and they are trying to reconcile within themselves what is going to happen if we can’t make changes and work towards climate action. Projects, like the “Pollinator Protectors” allows students be active participants in making small steps towards a greener more sustainable future.
