Thank you to Allyn’s Creek Garden Club!


The Landmark Society is fortunate to have a beautiful new garden full of native plants on the Stone-Tolan grounds designed to attract many kinds of pollinators. This spring, the Allyn’s Creek Garden Club donated the garden in response to an initiative by the National Pollinator Garden Network, a group of established conservation and horticulture organizations. NPGN launched the “Million Pollinator Garden Challenge” to urge gardeners across the country to create spaces that would be havens for insects, birds and other pollinators. What a blooming success! By late August, after some of the earlier-blooming plants had flowered, the garden was full and lush with later-flowering plants visited by hundreds of…pollinators!  >>Check out the blog post for more pictures.
