Due to the weather, the Dedication of the Southbury Garden Club’s new Pollinator Garden at Settler’s Park has been postponed until Monday, June 24th at 11:30 a.m. Come learn about the vital role pollinators play and the dangers they are facing.

Free milkweed seeds will be given out while supplies last. Milkweed is the only plant where Monarch butterflies build their cocoons.

SOUTHBURY GARDEN CLUB OFFERS FREE MILK WEED SEEDS 

 

The Southbury Garden Club invites interested area residents to attend the dedication of the club’s new Pollinator Garden in Settlers Park on Tuesday, June 18th at 1:30 p.m..

 

Garden Club President Elizabeth Berlenbach will discuss the importance of providing habitat for all our pollinators, including: bees; butterflies; hummingbirds, bats and other creatures who perform the vital roll of pollinating plants for items in our food chain.

 

In recognition of National Pollinator Week, June 17-23, First Selectman Jeffrey Manville will dedicate this new environmental space in Southbury.

 

Free milkweed seeds will be distributed as long as supplies last. Milkweed is the only plant where monarch butterflies will lay their eggs. Once found in every hedgerow, milkweed plants have been badly reduced by land development and the use of pesticides. These colorful harbingers of summer need our help to survive and flourish.

 

We hope to see all of you there!
