Introducing: Parkways for Pollinators
EEC's new Parkways for Pollinators program seeks to transform public spaces into pollinator forage and habitat, working to remediate the soil and capture carbon.
With seeds sourced from the community, growing resources provided by Loyola's Urban Agriculture Program, and distribution through EEC, we are pleased to offer native plant seedlings for our registered Parkways for Pollinators sites.
EEC provides resources including education, designs, planting supplies and materials, and native plant seedlings to registered sites.
To be notified of native plant distributions and/or register a site, fill out the short form here.
If there are any questions about registering a site, volunteering, and/or donating, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Acceptable sites are any publicly accessible spaces, including community's gardens, school yards, natural areas, parkways, and corner gardens.
Native plant recipients are encouraged to make a small donation in support of the program.
The first native plant distribution for registered sites will begin Spring 2022.
Volunteering & Donating
Volunteer opportunities include sorting and organizing seeds, preparing native plants for distribution, and helping prepare site locations for planting.
Donations of native plant seeds are accepted, please contact us for more info on how to donate.
