About this Monarch Project:
Belle Isle’s new garden also attracted lots of visits from pollinators. We collected quite a few caterpillars there to raise in the hut at home. These were part of the 60-count mentioned above.
We’re planning a second garden next year, closer to a main entrance, to encourage more patrons to get involved. We are thrilled that Carolyn Manes (Master Gardener) will continue to volunteer, and newly-minted Master Gardener, Rick Wicker, will adopt it, since he lives in the neighborhood.
Thanks so much to all the volunteers who are signing up to make these gardens a reality! Our dream is to install a garden at every library in the Metro system.
Thanks to the managers of Warr Acres (Barbara Beasley) and Belle Isle (Cassie Spindle), for allowing us to use their libraries as the “guinea pigs” for this project. We’re proud of our libraries for joining this important educational effort.
