Our pollinator gardens in action! Buzz away bee – not really!! We love bees, we love pollinators, & we love the ESSWCD’s Billie Fitzgerald Memorial Grants program for their support! ┬áThis trumpet creeper is a native plant that is great for pollinators and we encourage the planting of Eastern Shore Native Plants!

Another product of the Eastern Shore Soil & Water Conservation District’s Billie Fitzgerald Memorial Grants program, our butterfly bush is looking great! This bush not only survived the move from Onancock, it seems to love it here in Tasley!

Youthworks Week 3

This week’s Youthworks team came to us all the way from Wisconsin! As always we started them off with an Introduction to No Limits and a Brain Injury Prevention for Teens presentation.

Next up was a Gross Motor Skills activity – a tossing game that works on movement and balance skills.

They got a sneak peek at the slideshow Matt & Emma have been working on for the Elton trower Memorial on 7/22.

Youthworks helped us out by weeding our planter and washing our sign. Thank you so much!!!

They also helped us to dehydrate our catnip harvest.

They helped us cut out patterns for catnip toys for the kitties!

Thank you so much for coming to the Eastern Shore to help out!!
