How do you create a pollinator garden? According to Greenpeace USA, our bee populations are responsible for pollinating 70 out of the top 100 human food crops, supplying about 90% of the world’s nutrition. Bees and butterflies are especially drawn to nectar and pollen-rich flowers like wildflowers. Creating a bee garden can be as simple as planting a butterfly bush in a pot on your back patio or as complex as transforming large parts of your yard into a wildflower garden! Select single flower tops for your bee garden and skip the highly hybridized plants which produce very little pollen for bees.

Terrific choices to explore are crocus, hyacinth, wild lilac, bee balm, echinacea, snapdragons, russian sage, zinnias, sedum, asters, witch hazel, and goldenrod. Herbs are also very happy to receive bee-visits. Plant chives, thyme, oregano, or basil to help local bees create “locally” flavored honey!

Blue Star Memorial Marker

Blue Star Memorial Marker

Blue Star Memorial Markers in the United States pay tribute to the U.S. Armed Forces. The National Council of State Garden Clubs, now known as National Garden Clubs, Inc., started the program in 1945 after World War II. The Blue Star was used on service flags to denote a service member fighting in the war.

We are raising money for a marker in Eco Park just off of Veterans Parkway. The presentation to coincide with Cape Coral’s 50th Anniversary in 2020!
