Visit the Pollinator Garden website.

Tours of N.C. Cooperative Extension’s Pollinator Paradise Demonstration Garden are led by Agriculture Extension Agent Debbie Roos.

The garden features over 225 species of perennials, trees, shrubs, vines, and grasses, and 85% of them are native to North Carolina. This is a great opportunity to visit the popular gathering spot for honey bees, native bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and beneficial insects in addition to their human admirers!

The tours take place rain or shine and will last about an hour or a little longer depending on group size and interest.

There is no charge for the tour but registration is required to limit group size.

Below are the dates for the Summer 2021 tours. I will post fall dates soon.

I have also created virtual garden tours and am busy making more for this year.

I also do private tours for groups of 10 or more as my schedule permits. This could be Master Gardener℠ volunteers, beekeeping clubs, garden clubs, teachers, schools, etc. Email Debbie Roos if you are interested in scheduling a private tour.
