Support Pollinators in Watertown

6 Mar 2023 8:48 PM | Marilyn Salvas (Administrator)

Are you interested to learn more about gardening to support pollinators in Watertown?  

Do you want to get your hands dirty, even if you don’t have a yard of your own?  

Would you like to support wild birds, butterflies, bees, the Charles River watershed, or build climate change resilience?

Volunteers with Watertown Community Gardens invite you to join our gardeners this spring as we maintain several public pollinator gardens throughout the city.  WCG’s community connections committee has partnered with the Department of Public Works and a local pollinator awareness group, Friends of Bees, to install several native plant gardens throughout the city since 2021.

We are seeking volunteers from the community to help us do seasonal maintenance while learning hands-on about ecological landscaping practices and the biodiversity they support.  No gardening experience is required!  

Detailed instructions will be emailed to volunteers, so registration is required.
