The students of Hubbard Mastery, located in the Short North, need your help in building a pollinator garden and outdoor classroom! Our goal is to create a space in our schoolyard to support environmental exploration and real-life observation. By creating a pollinator-friendly garden we will help preserve struggling local butterfly, bee, bird, and bat populations.
Please dress appropriately, dress in layers and prepare for inclement weather, wear toe-covering boots/shoes, and/or items you don’t mind getting dirty. Work gloves will be provided, but please bring a reusable water bottle. Tools, such as rakes, shovels, weeders will be provided but limited, if you feel comfortable please bring your own garden tools to use the day of.
