Pollinate Phillips

BY PATRICK CABELLO HANSEL

We know that our food supply depends on pollinators—the little creatures like bees and butterflies that carry pollen from one flower to another. We know that pollinator populations are diminishing for a variety of reasons—climate change, pesticides, loss of habitat. But did you know that each of us can be a pollinator? We can pollinate beauty, justice and mercy, by how we integrate our lives with others.

St. Paul Lutheran’s Semilla Center for Healing and the Arts is committed to pollinating our neighborhood—with art, with justice, and with plants that attract pollinators. During the month of May, we will be planting boulevard gardens with pollinator-attracting plants, and teaching how to grow nutritious food in small containers. The month will culminate on May 21, when we “Pollinate Phillips”. We will start with breakfast at 9 am, and then we will break into teams to plant, plant art, do a survey of birds in the neighborhood, and enjoy our community.

Container garden planting workshops will be held at St. Paul’s on May 3 at 6 pm, and May 14 at 1 pm. St. Paul’s is located at 2742 15th Ave S. For more information, call 612-724-3862 or e-mail stpaulscreate@gmail.com.
