85 Green

We are excited to announce our newest venture, 85 Green!

85 Green is a series of initiatives that will promote nutritional literacy and help us learn and grow together toward a more sustainable community.


85 Green Learning Garden

Located in the Sheriff John Motz Courtyard at Central Library, the Learning Garden will be a place where people can come together to plant and care for vegetables, while building strong social ties.

Over the summer, people of all ages and backgrounds will have the opportunity to participate through programs, events, and hands-on learning and activities.

Honey Bee Hives

Bees, native bees and honey bees, provide crucial pollination services for both edible and non-edible plants in our community and our world. So much of what we eat depends on the pollination services provided by bees and other pollinators!

There are two beehives at Central Library. They are located on the green roof and are visible from the second floor of the library. Our hives will serve as learning opportunities for our community by being a platform for education and conversation about the importance of bees and other pollinators.
