Scouts visit the Gardens – May 10

Met with Scout Troop 64757 to talk about growing gardens. We looked at the Hurd Rain Garden, a traditional English style garden, the Hurd field Bioswale Garden and finished at the Arlington Reservoir Habitat Gardens.

They planted seeds of their choice from Black eyed Susans, Wild Bergamot (both from Pollinator Pathways & Sustainable Arlington) , Anise Hyssop, and Common Milkweed for a home pollinator garden. All essential plants for supporting the bees and butterflies.

To further support our ecosystem, we also pulled Garlic Mustard weed and stomped on the Japanese Knotweed to exhaust its growth. Thank you Girls!
