DHHS Eco Club Plants Pollinator Garden

The DHHS Eco Club is in the final stages of planting a pollinator garden at Daniel hand. Students and staff began working with Kellie Brady, head of the Madison Pollinator Pathway group, and Sue Stark, master gardener, over two years ago to create a native, 3-season flowering garden to attract and feed native bees, butterflies and birds and help maintain a healthy ecosystem for them on school grounds. Once all of the planting is complete, the club plans to add signage and information to make this an educational garden that can serve as a model for the community and for those individuals looking to cultivate more native gardens. The DHHS garden will also be added to the national pollinator garden map.
