Applied Ecology Pollinator Garden Project

Students in the Applied Ecology class researched different species of native plants that attract beneficial insects and pollinators, then designed and built a pollinator garden with support from a grant by Tucson Clean and Beautiful in between the permaculture site gardens and the orchard, based on principles of permaculture. This garden will not only look beautiful throughout the year and attract pollinators of all kinds, but will help to produce more food in the gardens and orchard as well.
