The sanctuary’s 12,000 square foot pollinator gardens support our most fragile creatures by providing critical shelter, sustenance & migration space for butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, and other pollinators. As an official MONARCH WAYSTATION, the sanctuary gardens also provide food and nectar for precious monarchs and caterpillars.
There’s something taking root and growing across the nation…kindness!
To date, 10,500 square feet of pollinator habitat has been planted in Connecticut and New York, creating a safe haven and source of sustenance for pollinators, beneficial insects and butterflies in community spaces. And now, Kindness Gardens are teaming up with Garden for Wildlife to expand the initiative across the country.
And you can help! Purchase native pollinator plants through Garden for Wildlife using our link and they’ll will donate an equal number for a Kindness Garden to be planted in a community space.
Built by volunteers and sustained by members of the community, the sanctuary’s thirty garden beds are a sight to behold. Working with the non-profit group, Real Food CT, the beds are in full production, overflowing with organic fruits, vegetables and berries that will be donated to food insecure families. And the best part? Over 3,000 pounds of produce in 2022 was harvested and donated to food insecure and animal sanctuaries. Plus, our pollinator friends LOVE the organic flowers! The sanctuary gardens are truly a collaborative success helping humans, animals and the environment.
