Pollinator Garden Planting

Up to 50 volunteers. Moderate to heavy effort. Some bending over to a lot of bending over. Learn to plant native plants for a pollinator garden. This includes 1) raking mulch to the left of planting holes using a scraping tool called a Mcleod, 2) digging holes with shovels and setting it to the right of the hole, 3) being on the ground to plant native plants into holes, refilling the holes, respreading the mulch around the hole, and placing a flag 2-3 inches to the north of the planted plants. Each volunteer can focus on any one of the above 3 steps or do all 3.
