The Hyde Park Visual Environment Committee HPVEC was awarded a $20,000 grant from Learn, Play, Create Dutchess County to install a sensory pollinator garden that is wheelchair and walker accessible. HPVEC partnered with the Staatsburg Library, where the garden has been installed, and the Anderson Center for Autism, through their Think Differently Grant, to develop signage and activities for children with special needs. The garden includes ADA raised beds to accommodate wheelchairs in addition to native pollinator plants, signage, a solar birdbath, wind chimes and ceramic representations of some butterflies and their larvae that may be found in the garden.
The garden has been designed to use as a teaching garden with activities geared to children. HPVEC will continue to collaborate with the Staatsburg Library and the Anderson Center for Autism to create educational and fun activities for children of all abilities.
