Guerrilla Gardening for Pollinators

8 months ago

There is a culvert behind our property that doesn’t get much attention from the city where I’ve decided to start sneeking in native plants. This winter I came across some webinars by Doug Tallamy on youtube, so I’m trying to focus on keystone plants. We already have oaks in the neighborhood (yay!) and tons of native violets along the banks. I added cliff goldenrod, sawtooth sunflower, and wild strawberry. I tucked the goldenrod and sunflower in a rocky area that will get missed by the city’s mowers. I planted the strawberry on the bank hoping it would grow low enough to withstand a trim when they mow, plus they are host to over fifty moth and butterfly species! Starting small to see how it goes.
