Elboya Heights Britannia Community Association took a natural approach to activating their community through the creation of an approximately 125 ft x 6 ft wide and circular portion pollinator garden that includes a row of existing 10 crabapple trees. We were able to strip off existing sod, till the soil, add 12 cubic yards of garden loam and installed approximately 288 ft of aluminum edging.
With tremendous support from the Parks Department, who used their own staff and equipment to assist in the project, nine fantastic volunteers and 16 participants carried out this installation at the cost of $2,109.91. One thing that stood out was the overall enthusiasm of everyone involved in the project and of the people walking through the finished park and gardens. A local middle school even worked the new installation into their curriculum to teach children about plants!
