Pollinator Garden at

Devils backbone

... is a collaboration between Devils Backbone Brewing Company and the Nelson County Master Gardeners.  The garden provides an educational resource to inform visitors of the importance of pollinators and the native plants they rely upon.  Enjoy the beauty of the wildflowers and butterflies, but don’t forget to look for caterpillars, moths, bees, and other insects that create the complex biodiversity needed for a healthy environment.  The garden has been designated as a Monarch Waystation.

The Quarry Gardens at Schuyler are a 40-acre showcase of locally native plants arrayed around six abandoned soapstone quarries (open to the public by appointment). Master Gardener volunteers help to steward the land and also lead tours for visitors who come from throughout the Commonwealth and beyond. 

Free tours by appointment most weekends from April through November. Groups may arrange visits during the week.  For more information visit www.quarrygardensatschuyler.org.
