Pollinator Garden at North Cross School

A project focused on educating students regarding the importance of pollinators to our environment.

In October 2016,  members of the Mill Mountain Garden Club planted a garden at North Cross School which will attract butterflies, bees, and other pollinators. Perennial flowers and milkweed plants will provide food and habitat for pollinators. Milkweed is the only plant that monarch butterflies feed and lay eggs on. Urban sprawl and pesticides have drastically reduced the number of monarchs. So the School has plans to plant milkweed in other locations around campus, too.
