Park Pride and the Atlanta Botanical Garden, thanks to the Building Community Network initiative by the Home Depot Foundation, installed five pollinator gardens at five well-established community gardens with active community involvement and support. Furthermore, thanks to this grant we were able to hire Urban GreenScapes a Greening Youth Foundation interns new business enterprise.
Grove Park Community Garden and Gilliam Park Community Garden were installed April 9, in February we hosted a Pollinator Garden design workshop, then PP presented the garden designs to the City of Atlanta for approval.
We present a series of photographies so you can see each garden’s transformation!
Park Pride Visioning Team and Atlanta Botanical Garden Pollinator Garden Coordinator, divided and conquered on both dates, so the gardens could be planted simultaneously. Thanks to each garden community support and volunteers we evaded the heat and had the plants in the ground in record time!
Each garden passed for the same process, a scouting visit, plan designs with the gardeners, once designs were approved we organized the working plans with Urban Greenscapes (prepping sites, tilling soil, edging on three gardens and fencing and edging at Four Corners, pick up and plant delivery, and Summer maintenance)
We would be updating you about the five Pollinator Gardens, and showing photographs of the blooming succession, each garden has plants that would bloom on the different seasons to help all pollinators through the year. Stay tuned!
