Pollinator Sanctuary at Friendship Park Taking Shape
A huge “Thank You” to Mohmed Ameer, Janet Bones, Elaine Burress, Craig Mabry, Ron Plaster, and Rosemarie Sells for their generous time and effort in helping make Social Circle beautiful!
These 6 master gardeners descended on Friendship Park last week to create the Pollinator Sanctuary and install nearly 100 perennials and shrubs – while attracting a few butterflies along the way.
Future updates will include:
- A literature box to hold educational brochures this month.
- Educational “botanical-garden-like” plant label markers installed over the next month.
- Regular biweekly maintenance throughout the winter months to include refreshing the mulch.
- An artwork centerpiece created by Rick Sells in the Spring.
Flower Mills of Social Circle generously donated butterfly weed, milkweed and pansies. This Pollinator Sanctuary project is made possible by a cooperative effort between the UGA Extension office and the Walton County Master Gardeners.
