Ready Made Native Pollinator Garden Program

LCC’s Ready Made Native Pollinator Garden Program will fund and coordinate the installation of up to 22 Pollinator Plantings for residents located within the Greater Longfellow Community.

The program is designed to increase pollinator habitat while also educating participants around sustainability and pollinator conservation. Garden installations will include a special focus on creating food sources and habitat for the endangered Rusty Patched Bumble Bee, in order to extend its effective range and connect established habitat corridors in and around Greater Longfellow.

Who can apply?

Owners and renters of single-family and multi-family residential properties in the Longfellow, Cooper, Howe and Hiawatha neighborhoods. Properties must have an unpaved area of at least 80 square feet for the garden.

Renters must obtain permission from the property owner, including their signature on the required resident agreement.
