Rain, sun and temperature play important roles in the growth of our crops. Our farmer closely monitors weather measurements like rainfall and temperature to determine what our plants will need to grow strong. Come explore the tools we use to track changes in the weather and create some of your weather measurement tools to track changes in weather at the Farm and at home!

Most plants need the help of pollinators such as bees, wasps, butterflies, moths, flies, birds, bats, and beetles to distribute the pollen from one flower to another in order to produce fruit. At the entrance to the Pitney Meadows Community Gardens, we have a dedicated pollinator garden (an official Monarch Waystation) filled with plants that help keep monarch butterflies and pollinators healthy. Thanks to the @XercesSociety, Pitney Meadows has received two Northeast Monarch and Pollinator Kits, which consist of more than 1,000 seedlings, including native milkweed and a variety of other nectar plants, shrubs, and bunch grasses. #PollinatorWeek is celebrated annually to spread the word about the important role pollinators play in our food supply and ecosystems and what we can do to protect and support them. Help spread the word about planting for pollinators at your house, school, and other places with room for plants! Keep your ears peeled for one of our pollinator planting events!
