Pollinator Pocket

Our Pollinator Pocket is located on one end of our Community Garden. It provides a beautiful space for our neighbors to enjoy as they enter the Community Garden and attracts pollinators for our edible plants.

Jackson Elementary Pollinator Garden

The Outdoor Classroom is a designated area on the school grounds that was created for students to interact with nature while participating in cross-curricular learning. A gazebo, boardwalk, seasonal pond, pollinator garden, and bamboo maze are the main features of the Outdoor Classroom. Educators utilize this rich resource to teach a wide variety of subjects, ranging from science and math to language arts and social studies.

Smiling Sky Farm Monarch Waystation

We have 28 acres of uncultivated mixed grass prairie that host tons of milkweed & numerous varieties of wildflowers. We use no pesticides. We have schools out in the spring & talk about pollinators. We have tagged in the past & I have bought seeds for my town & for my son’s school. I was successful in getting our mayor to sign the Mayor’s Monarch Pledge & have several monarch gardens go in. At our farm we continue to cultivate milkweed & have a plot of wild verbena, also cone flowers, & nectar plants.

Beverly’s Pollinator & Monarch Garden

Pollinator/Monarch Garden planted in my backyard April, 2020 during the Safe at Home days of Covid 19 crisis. Migrating monarchs touched my life during a difficult time years ago. I built this garden to support them on their journey. It contains 2 kinds of milkweed, monarda, butterfly bush, blue aster & cone flowers. Thanks to inspiration by Marcie Hawkins, Debra Parkhurst & Broken Arrow city Horticulturalist Chris Ohler. Special thanks to Dianne Nail for sharing plantings & her Master Gardener wisdom.
