Pollinator Gardens

Raised gardens have been established in Riverside Park in downtown Northfield to provide flowers for pollinating insects. Two gardens are designed in the shapes of insects: the Butterfly Garden and the Dragonfly Garden. Both gardens are planted with species that attract important pollinators, such as butterflies and bees. These gardens are intended to appeal to children and to help teach them about the value of flowering plants in supporting pollinators. These projects were jointly funded by the Northfield Garden Club, Northfield in Bloom and the City of Northfield. Garden Club members maintain these gardens along with many other public gardens in the city.
