Aubrey and Monica engaged elementary students, teachers and community members to plant
pollinator gardens in Northern Colorado.  They designed and taught each group about the impact pollinators community commitment student implementationpollinators have on our environment then helped each group create a garden.  Each garden included flowers that attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.  They created gardens at four schools and three churches around Northern Colorado.  In addition, Monica and Aubrey distributed garden designs and seeds to each person so they could create their own gardens at their homes.
