Members of the St. Cloud State Community Garden worked with staff from the St. Cloud Public Library and St. Cloud Parks and Recreation June 13 to take an old planter and turn it into a new pollinator garden.
Chris Zabinski from St. Cloud Parks and Recreation and Community Garden volunteers removed the existing shrubs and wood chips and cleaned up and amended the soil.
Faculty member Tracy Ore worked with garden member and faculty Emeritus Pamm Minden to design a bed to attract pollinators and to look nice in front of the library.
Volunteers from the garden and library planted the pollinators June 13 and will care for them throughout the summer.
