Upper Valley Pollinator Partners
Starting in 2017, Hanover's Biodiversity Committee collaborated with many Upper Valley conservation groups on a quest to create 100 new pollinator gardens in the Upper Valley.
In 2021, are you planning to install a pollinator garden?
Download a two-page handout (PDF) that describes how to plant a pollinator garden and a brief plant list of mostly native plants that cover the seasons.
The image shows a new Pollinator Garden at Hanover High School, installed in 2018.
For new gardens as of 2017, we would like to have documentation to describe any new gardens. See Garden Descriptions (PDF). The first 100 people to describe their garden and submit it to Hanover's Planning Office will receive this plaque for their garden.
