With goal to inspire ideas of plant choices and garden design for use in anyone's lawn or acreage.
The Outdoor Classroom and Pollinator Plot is stiving for having the best of both worlds: A pollinator garden to support bees and other pollinators to promote a healthy ecosystem using xericape plants that provide food and shelter for pollinators while using little to no supplemental water.
