If you like to dig in the dirt, weed, plant perennials and other shrubs, come and join us! We have at least three work days a year, including right before Easter, in June and in October. We also get together to work on gardening projects at various times throughout the year. We invite you to have fun with us while we enjoy enhancing God’s creation in our courtyard and around our church’s 10-acre property.
St. Martin's Pollinator Garden
When you are at church, or anytime in the area, stop by and see our attractive Pollinator Garden located across from the courtyard entrance. In September 2020, fourteen volunteers planted 65 native perennials to create a thriving habitat for bees, butterflies, songbirds and other pollinators. A variety of perennials were included that grow to different heights and bloom at different times in the spring, summer and fall. These plants included goldenrod, milkweed, coneflowers, asters, hyssop, salvia, and varieties of coreopsis. We thank St. Martin’s Caring for Creation Green Team and Unity Gardens for their grant making this pollinator garden possible. A sign at the site highlights the benefits of pollinator plants. We hope you will be inspired to include pollinator plants in your garden to help our crucial pollinators and our environment.
