Streetsville Pollinator Showcase Garden Event  

As you may know from my previous e-newsletter,the City of Mississauga was awarded a total of $18,000 by Scotts Canada Limited to build pollinator-friendly gardens.
Pollinators are very important for our environment. Without the assistance of pollinators, most plants are unable to produce fruits and seeds, which are essential food sources for people and wildlife. The City will focus on building spaces where pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, can improve their health, be active, thrive and encourage the revival of pollinator populations.
Scotts Canada and Communities in Bloom provided the City with a total of three grants:
  • $15,000 for the Streetsville Pollinator Showcase Garden
  • $1,500 for the Dr. Martin L. Dobkin Park Pollinator Garden
  • $1,500 for the Port Credit Library Pollinator Garden
The pollinator-friendly gardens will contain perennial flowers and plants to attract butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators. Pollinators feed on nectar and collect pollen, transferring the genetic material necessary for the reproduction of flowers, fruits and vegetables.
The official event to celebrate the creation of new Streetsville Pollinator Showcase Garden is as follows:
