People can now visit a special garden in North Dundas created to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.
The “Platinum Jubilee Pollinator Garden” features more than 1,000 plants indigenous to our region, according to the plaque outside its entrance.
“Throughout the growing season,” the plaque reads, “the twelve native plant species will provide food, shelter and pollen to a variety of local pollinators, including butterflies and bees.”
The grand opening ceremony for the garden was held on Monday, with Mayor Tony Fraser and other members of North Dundas council joined by students from Nationview Public School in South Mountain for the event.
If you want to see the garden for yourself, it’s in Mountain, near the Battle of Hill 70 memorial.
