Master Gardener Pollinator Garden Project
In 2021, an existing garden was taken over by the Anne Arundel Master Gardener program.
Master Gardeners are volunteer representatives of the University of Maryland who are trained to educate citizens about effective and sustainable horticultural practices. Master Gardeners offer landscaping problem solving through demonstration projects, partnerships with other organizations, and outreach activities. The goal of the Linthicum Walks project was to create an on site demonstration pollinator garden using native plants to demonstrate sustainable gardening practices, the importance of pollinators, and the ecological importance of native plants. Master Gardeners tend the gardens and provide environmental education through signage, tours and events. The site is registered with the East Coast Pollinator Pathway, and pledges not to use pesticides, herbicides, and strives to remove or manage invasive plants.
