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 225 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. When tours and workshops were suspended in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic I started creating virtual garden tour videos so folks could continue enjoying and learning from the garden.

I just posted TWO virtual tours, from May and June!

I resumed in-person tours of the pollinator garden in mid-May. You can view a list of the tours and register for future tours when I post them. The summer tours are all full but I will be posting dates for the fall tours soon.

See a list of plants blooming in the pollinator garden. The list is updated bi-weekly. Currently, there are over 70 species in bloom!
