The former biochar demonstration garden is the new location for the 2016 Flowers for Pollinators trial on the U of M campus. It was planted May 25th by MGs Claire Kari and Joan Onffroy, and EE Julie Weisenhorn – 3/5 of the campus team which also includes Lynn
Meyer and Anita Hoaglund. Gopher Adventurers (ages 9-12) will also be trying their hand at identifying / counting pollinators during their horticulture sessions under the supervision of MGs Betsy Massie, Sue Wieczorek and Kathie Doerr. The FfP site also has a plot of various vegetables including the “rainbow of colors” from the state seed trial committee, and other vegetables team members are interested in trying to grow / taste. The produce will be shared with area food shelves.
