Pollinator Garden

Pollinator Haven, Lee County


Pollinator Haven is a teaching/demonstration garden located at the N.C. Cooperative Extension-Lee County office at 2420 Tramway Rd. Sanford NC. The garden’s existence is the result of a group effort led by horticulture agent, Minda Daughtry and the Extension Master Gardener Volunteers of Lee County, who researched plant species, designed the landscape, cleared and prepared the soil, and planted the garden. The garden is maintained by the same group of Extension Master Gardener Volunteers. The purpose of the garden is to educate the public about the importance of pollinators and to teach about pollinator habitat. See below for a list of plants in Pollinator Haven.
