Grass Be Gone Mission

Thank you for visiting our garden. Port Colborne youth would like to see more flowers and less grass in our community as future stewards of our land. This webpage provides pictures from the day the students of the 7/8 class of DeWitt Carter School created the pollinator garden. Following these pictures is an identification guide for the flowers grown here.

The students shown here are passionate about creating change and are seeking others who want to join their "Grass Be Gone Mission." We hope you can be inspired!



Listed below is the identification of the flowers that we planted that benefit the pollinators in our area.
