A conversation at the APCA election day bake sale in fall 2019 led to the transformation of the neglected lot at Sheldon & Elm into a vibrant native plant pollinator garden.

Scroll through the photos to see the progress. We have more plans for this space and welcome volunteers to join us.

We are grateful for all the volunteers who have helped us through planning, acquiring plants, planting, design, planting, watering the garden, weeding, clearing debris, cutting the hedge, pulling invasive plants, clearing trash, spreading mulch.

Special thanks for generous donation of plants from Jenkins Arboretum and Lower Merion Conservancy.

Our garden is part of the Pollinator Pathway.

What's in the garden?

There are over 25 species of native plants in the Sheldon Pollinator Garden.
