This Mother's Day, trumpet vine (also known as hummingbird vine) was planted. Native to our region, the trumpet vine will attract hummingbirds, and will eventually provide dense nesting for many other bird species.

The abundance of blueberries that have been produced by the plants in Chesnut's Certified Wildlife Habitat Garden are feeding various wildlife, including birds and squirrels. Blackberry plants, transferred from a Chesnut family's home garden into trellis planter boxes funded by a Kitchen Gardeners International grant, will also feed many types of birds this summer.

Chesnut Charter's Certified Wildlife Habitat Garden is one of three gardens that will host STEM lessons in the 2014-15 school year. The other gardens include the Chesnut Garden outdoor classroom, and the Math Pizza Garden, which is currently under construction and will feature geometrically shaped beds.
