Pollinator Paradise Garden

Pollinator Paradise is a Demonstration Garden created by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Chatham County Center. Agriculture Agent Debbie Roos designed the garden to provide forage from early spring to late fall for pollinators such as native bees, honey bees, butterflies, flower flies, hummingbirds, beetles, and other beneficial insects. The garden features over 220 unique species of perennials, 85% of which are native to North Carolina.

The garden is a great teaching tool and is used to conduct workshops and tours for hundreds of folks each year. Tours and workshops are temporarily suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic but visitors are allowed to come on their own if they practice adequate social distancing.

Since I am not currently able to give in-person tours, I created a virtual tour for folks to enjoy, comprised of video and photos I took in June from the garden. This is the first time I have tried this so I welcome your feedback as to content and length…was this helpful? Normally a face-to-face tour lasts about an hour and obviously I can’t show everything in a virtual tour, but I highlighted some of my favorite plants and tried to show different parts of the garden (but not all was included because then it would be too long!).

If you have feedback on the virtual tour, including suggestions for improvement, please email me directly at debbie_roos@ncsu.edu and put “virtual tour” in the subject line. If folks like this and find it helpful I am happy to do more! I look forward to hearing from you.

Take a virtual tour of the Pollinator Paradise Garden to see what it looked like in June.

See a list of plants blooming in the pollinator garden. The list is updated bi-weekly. Currently, there are over 75 species in bloom!
