Oxford's Pollinator Garden At George Street Park
Oxford's first pollinator garden, located in the city right-of-way near
the college, between Wesley St. and Asbury St., is planted with
regionally-native, flowering pollinator plants. All the plants are
perennial, coming back year after year, providing nectar and
habitat for butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, etc.
The garden will take another year or so to mature, and a few
plants still must be installed. However, the blooms so far this
year have been fantastic! We’ve seen various pollinators busy
in the garden, including honey bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
We also have seen goldfinches snacking on the seeds of the
early spring blooms, now gone to seed.
We hope you will stop by and see,
if you are out for a walk in the area.
