Perfectly Perfect Pollinator Garden at Stilson Elementary

Teacher:  Jenny Hendrix

Pollinator Garden ProjectSecond-grade students at Stilson Elementary School had a wonderful experience as they created a Perfectly Perfect Pollinator Garden thanks to both a grant from the Bulloch County Foundation for Public Education and skilled volunteers from the Brooklet Garden Club and the Ogeechee River Daylily Club.

The children and volunteers planted 20 pots of native Georgia pollinator plants surrounding the school's existing Gourd Garden in order to help attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The students were learning about pollinators in their Science Technology Engineering & Math Lab Stilson Elementary School's STEM Lab teacher, Jenny Hendrix, is skilled at creating science, technology, engineering, and math lessons for her students that also apply to agriculture.
