Neighborhood-centric Atlanta is the perfect urban model for community based pollinator conservation
- Atlanta is a city of neighborhoods, each with its own unique personality.
- A pollinator garden can help to cultivate and grow a neighborhood’s identity, and create community involvement.
- Community gardens also create a meeting place, and enhance aesthetic appeal.
- Neighborhood pollinator gardens can compliment other community projects such as neighborhood festivals (Grant Park Summer Shade Festival, East Atlanta Strut), community food gardens (Kirkwood and Oakhurst), and community based aid/volunteer groups.
- One of GAPP’s aims is to promote and aid community-run pollinator gardens in metro Atlanta neighborhoods, and to promote the inclusion of pollinator-friendly species in community or food gardens.
