Project: Frank Street Bee & Butterfly Garden  
 Ottawa Centretown, near Bank Street, Ottawa

The Frank St Bee and Butterfly Garden exists to provide a beautiful space to build friendships and community while learning how to support local pollinators and ecosystems. If this sounds fun to you, come join our group of volunteers!

We are a grassroots volunteer-only group founded in 2020. Much of our work is hands on, in-person at the garden on Frank St. Some work takes place online, so you can help out even if you can't always make it to the garden.
