With funds secured through the NH Conservation and Heritage License Plates, we will be transforming four locations in the Manchester community from mulch lots, lawns, or ailing landscapes, into beautiful garden spaces that appeal to both pollinators and people. These gardens will provide a place for students, teachers, and the general public to establish a relationship with nature while connecting with native pollinators.
