Welcome to the homepage for the Live Well Community Garden at Sexton Hall!
In partnership with the Forsyth County Master Gardeners and the Boy Scouts of America, this garden is an extension of Forsyth County Senior Services' mission to help adults age well by living a healthy and active lifestyle.
You're Invited to Visit our Pollinator Garden!
In addition to helping our existing garden thrive by attracting valuable pollinators, the Pollinator Garden can help you learn about these vital contributors to the life cycle of all our beautiful plants and blooms.
What are plant pollinators, and why are they important? Honeybees, bumblebees, mason bees, birds, butterflies, moths, wasps, beetles, other insects and various mammals are pollinators. It's estimated that over 75% of the world's flowering plants depend on pollinators for reproductive success, meaning that without their help, these plants could head for extinction. Plus, more than 150 food crops in the U.S. alone depend on pollinators! Pollinators are essential, and therefore, providing them with supportive environments is increasingly important. Each plant in our Pollinator Garden was selected to maintain a variety of color schemes and bloom seasons in the garden in order to support the entire pollinator life cycle!
Generous funding from the Georgia Master Gardeners Association, the Forsyth County Master Gardeners and Forsyth County Senior Services made this Pollinator Garden project possible, but it could not have come to life without the contribution of innumerable labor hours from volunteers, staff, and garden friends. Come visit the Pollinator Garden today! Walk along the sidewalk down the left side of Sexton Hall at 2115 Chloe Road (off Sharon Road) and step carefully around to the back of the building - follow the sounds of the birds and the bees or our resident hummingbirds might lead you there. More educational programs and garden fun are planned for the future, and our community and the pollinators will enjoy the Pollinator Garden for years to come!
