Installation of the Pollinator Garden
The installation of the Pollinator Garden at Nolensville High School is completed and open to the public! This will serve as a pollinator garden “lab” for the Biology Department at the high school. During the school year, the department will be responsible for watering and maintenance of the garden.
The project has been a 2 1/2 year endeavor! The garden was designed to provide native plants to feed our Tennessee pollinators and contains four varieties of milkweed, a plant essential to the lifecycle of the now endangered Monarch Butterfly. Two separate gardens have been installed, one with a millstone sculpture to celebrate Mill Creek and all that it brings to our community.
A special thank you to all involved in the project, Mill Creek Watershed Association, Williamson County Schools, Hargrove Design Studio, Green Nolensville, the Town’s Public Works Department, and the Trees and Trails Advisory Committee for their contributions. We also want to thank Stephens Seed and Supply, Blast Away Custom Mobile Sandblasting, and all volunteers involved.
If you would like to visit, the gardens are located along the greenway beside the practice fields. Interpretative signage will be installed at a later date.
