On Saturday, January 21 at Opalanie Park, our EAC members gave out free New England aster seeds for winter sowing to 50 West Vincent residents, as part of their Pollinator Pitstop Program. This is the second year of the program, designed to blanket West Vincent in native flowers to help native pollinators. Last year, the group gave out butterfly milkweed seeds for winter sowing, shared 650 butterfly milkweed plants at Community Day, and planted milkweed in our Pitstop Garden at Andrew Evans Park.
