Community Converts Parking Lot Into Native Pollinator Garden
The Patagonia community came together last week to put over 100 native pollinator-attracting plants in the ground. This planting marks the culmination of over a year and a half of planning and work by both the Patagonia Tree and Park committee and Borderlands Restoration to convert a parking area into a rainwater-harvesting pollinator garden that will one day attract diverse insect life. Keep an eye on this space to monitor the progress of these plants and the development of this ecosystem.
Enjoy the shade of the once-struggling sycamore trees who have benefited from the newly accessible water. The success is visible in the new leaf growth, which is beginning to turn color with the changing seasons.
We hope this community space across from the Marshall’s Office marks the beginning of restoration of Patagonia’s public spaces.
