Kestner Park Native Garden

Posted October 23, 2023
After watching and weeding for about a year, Keweenaw Wild Ones finally got to do what we love best and start planting this big (about 50-by-25-foot) site. This fall we installed 32 prairie dropseed from Prairie Nursery along the border of this garden, which faces a busy parking lot. Big thanks to Craig Waddell and Vicky Bergvall, who provided $750 in gift certificates. That will make it possible to start planting in earnest this spring.

We also planted a Sunny Garden from U.P. Native Plants, donated by Kathy Narhi. Thanks, Kathy! In the meantime, we’ll be working on a design for the rest of the garden. Can’t wait till spring to see how it comes together.
