ChangeHampton volunteers planting the Community Native and Pollinator Garden at East Hampton Town Hall.
The East Hampton Town Hall Community Pollinator Garden Comes to Life!
With the help of community volunteers and Eco-Harmony Inc. crew we planted 1,300 plants this weekend according to the magnificent design by Abby Clough Lawless of Farm Landscaping Design, Inc.
Soon you’ll be able to look up each of those plants on our website! Keep track of postings here.
We are grateful to the JM Kaplan Fund and the Long Island Community Foundation for their support of our garden. We also thank Whitmores of East Hampton, Fowlers of Southampton and Verderber’s Nursery in Aquebogue for their donations of trees, shrubs and supplies. Prfct Earth and Edwina von Gal have been a continual source of inspiration, guidance and encouragement.
We are also very grateful for the donations from individual residents of the East End and the volunteer help so many have given to the creation of this special garden.
The Community Native & Pollinator Garden at EH Town Hall is a public-private partnership with the Town of East Hampton.

MAINTENANCE AND WATERING
A great irrigation system was installed courtesy of Matt Palumbo at Conserva Irrigation! We are very grateful.
While native plants don’t need a lot of water since they are attuned to the local weather, they do need help when they are first planted. And we have a lawn area in the middle for public activities like tours, classes, relaxation and contemplation. But we will be watering that lawn only about once a week.
JOIN US AND GET INVOLVED! You can get involved in the garden! Let us know if you have a couple of hours each week or every other week to help us with mulching, weeding or worrying about the deer! Or just having fun with out team!!
