The Garden at 485 Elm
People growing together:
a collaborative community garden in Montpelier, Vermont

We’re “Wild for Pollinators”

The Garden at 485 Elm is part of the Vermont Community Garden Network’s Wild for Pollinators initiative.

It’s a very serious matter for our food crops that native bees, including honeybees, are in trouble. Pollinator-welcoming habitat in every garden, yard, windowsill, and wherever you can plant it counts more than ever.

Perennial beds with native plants attract pollinating friends

We humans enjoy bee balm, too


This made us smile as we walked along the Burlington, Vermont waterfront bike path
