The Skyridge Wildlife Garden Project

This season’s gardening effort has featured the Skyridge Wildlife Garden Project. I have been part of the project from helping to write a grant proposal last summer to a whirlwind of planting activity through the months of June and July! Skyridge Wildlife Garden is a native plant garden located at Skyridge Church of the Brethren in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The garden area is the basin of a storm water detention area and the surrounding slopes. My fellow volunteers and I have installed over 40 varieties of native plants to help support native pollinators and other area wildlife!
