It’s official, the Community Pollinator Garden at Our Saviour Lutheran Church is now open for “buzziness.”
The church – on No. 4 Road, close to Westminster Highway – hosted a dedication service last weekend, with a number of elected officials and benefactors coming out in support.
It took the church and its members about three months of hard work to get the garden ready to be filled with bees and other pollinators to serve its role in Richmond’s so-called “Nectar Trail.”
The garden, said the church, is a “calm place of respite filled with bees and butterflies, with much to hear and photograph for bird enthusiasts and opportunities to sketch or paint a piece of Richmond.”
