To help make Madison pollinator-friendly, the Community Garden has grown milkweed, blue lobelia, wild bergamont and 10 other types of native perennial plants. Madison residents and Boro employees are invited to dig up two plants for free!
Tools will be provided. Please bring your own plant container. And if you have extra plant containers you don't need—especially 3- to 6-inch diameter pots—they'll gladly be accepted for future pollinator plant giveaways.
“For our giveaway, we planted a 50-foot bed with seeds from our pollinator meadows,” says Stephen McAuliffe, chair of the Community Garden Advisory Committee. Joan Maccari of the Madison Environmental Commission, along with volunteers from the Rutgers Master Gardener’s Program, helped harvest the seeds. Alice Wade and the Garden Club of Madison also helped with cultivation.
