The Monarch Butterfly Corridor Gardens are humming along and attracting all kinds of pollinators.
This Eastern Black Swallowtail is a beautiful female that you may see around the gardens. Ask Christina Delfico for her story!
Many RIGC gardeners have also added to their plots wild bergamot, varied milk weeds, echinacea, other native plants as well as fennel, dill, and curly parsley to attract pollinators and their caterpillars.

The Monarch Butterfly Corridor Garden spaces were made possible with iDig2Learn funding from The City Gardens Club of NYC, Grow to Learn and Citizens Committee for NYC with partners RIOC, RIGC, Girl Scouts & 217PTA.
