JUNE 24: Plant a sunflower and build an insect hotel at JoJo’s Garden

Kids at Jo-Jo's Community Garden

All Stittsville kids are invited to come out to the Jo-Jo’s Community Garden on Stittsville Main Street this Saturday from 10am-12pm to plant a sunflower of their own at the garden and also participate in building our new Insect Hotel.

We have sunflower seeds for them to use at the garden and the kid who grows the biggest sunflower will win a very special prize in the fall.

The Stittsville-Goulbourne Horticultural Society awarded us a $100 grant to build an Insect Hotel. The third week of June is International Pollinator week and we want to teach kids about how a community can assist with protecting insect populations, as well as learning about pollination gardens and their benefits.

This will be so much fun. Ask your to children to gather pine cones, twigs, tree bark, hollow plant stems, and any natural material for us to use in the hotel.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
