Our Gardens!

Gratitude to those who made these gardens possible with their donations or labor,
and to those who continue to tend them today.

We love how this pollinator garden, designed by Kimberly Brown, transformed a dry, unused corner of the Ashland Emergency Food Bank property into a beautiful haven for pollinators and people.
 

Many thanks to the Ashland Emergency Food Bank for providing this space to create this garden for pollinators and people!

We moved into our office on Main Street in February 2019, and right away, began dreaming of a beautiful pollinator garden, filled with native, low- to no-irrigation plants. Here is the list of the native plants growing in the front garden.

Our new Garden Guide is now available for a self-guided tour as well as for sale. Providing detailed information about each of the 30 plant species growing in the Garden, as well as the pollinators they
support, the Guide is
a special resource to
help you create a
native plant garden
for the pollinators! 


The south side of the
building is now a
mini-nursery as well
as a pollinator garden. 
 

We are fortunate and grateful to be the  recipient of a grant from the Ashland Food Co-op in 2019 that helped us turn our dream into reality.

Our short and long term goals are to see more native pollinators in the landscape - bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, wasps, and hummingbirds.

 

Periodically, we conduct 'pollinator counts' to track and collect the numbers of pollinator species in our garden at The Pollination Place. Not surprisingly, we have documented an increase in native pollinator species since we installed the current native pollinator garden in late 2019 (see photo album on the top right).

 

Please enjoy our photo album of the pollinator counts we have documented since 2020. Along with the actual data sheets, you will be able to see some of the 'action' and the pollinators we saw. (click the photo below to access the album)

We encourage you to do your own pollinator counts! Or, let us know if you would be interested in participating in a pollinator count with us.

We are thrilled and honored to have been included in the virtual Native Plants Garden Tour hosted by the Jackson County Master Gardeners in May and June, 2021!  With 11 gardens, the Tour demonstrates how each space can be beautiful for people and pollinators.  
 

Thanks to the Master Gardener's for taking on such a big project and sharing the important message - plant native plants for our native pollinators!

Kyle Poling and Kristina Lefever highlight why our garden is a beautiful native pollinator garden through the seasons.

Gratitude and many thanks to Wanda Borland for all of her work on these wonderful videos below! Learn more about Wanda, a Pollinteer Extrodinaire, on our Blog
