Pollination Garden 2014

Dec 02 2014
When Murray Hunter approached Father Marty and me at a Deanery Council Meeting in the first part of 2014, I was thrilled to participate in such an important project to help save the bees and their vital role in maintaining our environment. We already had established our community garden in the empty lot beside the former rectory, so we had plenty of space to add a pollination garden as well.

When Murray Hunter approached Father Marty and me at a Deanery Council Meeting in the first part of 2014, I was thrilled to participate in such an important project to help save the bees and their vital role in maintaining our environment. We already had established our community garden in the empty lot beside the former rectory, so we had plenty of space to add a pollination garden as well. I envisioned that it would look great at the front of the property surrounding our community garden sign, providing a very colourful entry way to our fourteen garden plots. This was going to be an exciting competition among ten churches in the Diocese of Huron, funded by the Julia Hunter Fund at the London Community Foundation. An initial $300 bursary was given to the ten participants to help fund the design and creation of the gardens. At the end of the competition three $500 bursaries were being offered to the winners. Criteria for the prizes included elements such as the design and innovation of the garden, its environmental value, education and community development through the garden project. Summer 2014Since we are the Church of St. Andrew, I thought that it would be very appropriate to design our pollination garden be in the shape of the St. Andrew cross. We created four triangular raised flower beds, with the help of several volunteers on our spring garden build day. Using the first $300, with the help of Murray Hunter, I purchased 18 different plants that attract bees and planted them in all four triangles. Lee Valley donated plant labels. The concept of bringing awareness to the plight of the bees, which is being caused by the use of neonicotinoids, is a problem which cannot be ignored. Therefore the idea was to create an environment where people could do a self-directed tour of the pollination garden to see which types of plants attract bees. I prepared a list of the plants, with both the common and Latin names, numbered from one to eighteen to match the numbers on each plant label in the garden. I updated church members on the project regularly during the announcements at church, and encouraged people to pick up a document and go to the garden to identify the types of plants there. There seemed to be much interest in this, since approximately 2/3 of the lists were taken. Finally the project finale--- there was a Bee Fest event held at the London Club on October 18th to announce the three winning gardens. There were members of the local, provincial and federal governments in attendance because of the importance of this bee health issue. In addition, we now have a petition to stop the use of neonicotinoids—that was sent to us by Irene Mathyssen, MP, and is being circulated among Deanery churches. Irene will present this petition to the Canadian Parliament. I was thrilled to represent St. Andrew Memorial and receive one of the three $500 bursaries. This will be used to continue to fund our gardens, and look after God’s creations. This was a fun project and a great learning experience for me, and I think a learning experience for the parish members as well. I was so glad to be a part of it and couldn’t have done it without the help of many volunteers, as well as the help of Murray Hunter who was the project leader. But most importantly, Anglican churches in the Diocese of Huron have made a big contribution to the awareness of how important bees are to the environment, and thanks to this, the government is now paying attention.
