Our plan is to use our garden as local teaching tool and demo garden for our neighborhood. We want to have our garden to an example to our local neighbors, filled with information and a sitting area where people can relax, read and take in the beauty of nature in the big city. Sometimes, living in a big city like Chicago, we can lose track of how important nature is and what an important role pollinators like bees, butterflies, and birds play in keeping plants growing. Our funds will help to build our example pollinator garden and then to help buy plants to help our neighbors set up there pollinator areas- even a small addition of plants, a water source, or other things can help keep our pollinators healthy and even us living in the city can help!
We will use the money to secure an area for planting our garden and developing the information for our neighbors. Then, we will be buying additional native pollinator friendly plants, watering areas, and other accessories that we will help our neighbors plants in their pollinator zones.
