Home Gardeners

Increases in urban infrastructure over the last ten years has led to a loss of  over 200,000 acres of potential greenspace  in Atlanta.  

Home gardens are an integral part of pollinator conservation in Atlanta. Each garden becomes an important part of a pollinator corridor that stretches across the urban landscape, connecting pollinators to areas of forage and nesting.

This corridor also provides a greenway map of gardens for migrating birds, butterflies and bats. Creating a pollinator green space in your home is easy and can be done by simply adding  a few specific elements to your existing garden.

Pollinator gardens are a sustainable, and inexpensive to create and maintain, and they can be scaled to be suitable for apartments and smaller greenspaces.
