Site 6: Stewardship Garden

The Stewardship Garden is unique among the sites on our Path, being composed mainly of vegetables surrounded by a beautiful zinnia border that attracts many bees and butterflies.  This year, there are orange marigolds throughout the garden, making the entire site an huge advertisement for pollinator food sources.
