Bee Pollinating Garden

Monroeville Foundation Projects - bee pollinating garden

With a need to give the garden a new sense of the same purpose, the Food Pantry Garden directed itself for 2015 as a Bee Pollinating Garden. More volunteers joined, some had to do less work. This led to a growing number interested in how the local bee population could be supported. Therefore, the garden area is now transformed into a gentle and beautiful garden space for pollination. A variety of bees, and other pollinators can be seen flocking to these herbs.
