While weeding the Fairgrounds Demonstration garden beds this week, we noticed a pair of swallows darting in and out of one the birdhouses that David Sligar made for our Permaculture Garden bed! Needless to say we are pretty psyched about that! We have had Monarchs lay eggs in the Monarch Butterfly Garden and many many bees and other pollinators visiting each year, but this is the first time we have had birds use the bird houses! Even in the middle of what is essentially a big asphalt parking lot we were able to create an environment that encouraged birds to inhabit it! Yea!
