The Wildlife Habitat Garden

       About one-third of our food supply depends upon an abundance of pollinators in our gardens, farms and the wild. The Harvest Garden offers visitors the opportunity to learn about the critical relationships between plants, insects, birds and other wildlife so essential to pollination.

      Valuable habitat has been lost or severely disrupted by population growth, pesticides and pollution. Integrating food growing, herbs and native plants in the Garden demonstrates the importance of these relationships. We've installed bee boxes, birdhouses, birdbaths and fruit-bearing and nectar-rich plants to encourage wildlife to nest, feed and reproduce. The Wildlife Habitat Garden provides pollinators (bees, butterflies, wasps, beetles, flies and birds) with over 200 habitat plants - 73% of which are Calfiornia natives.
