Planning A Backyard Pop Up Meadow – Helen Raleigh Saturday, April 20

If you have visited Story Hill Farm in Frankford, then you may have experienced
the breathtaking site of Helen Raleigh’s four-acre wildflower meadow on the way
to the farm that is a sanctuary for dozens of pollinators and birds. If you’ve been
wanting to learn more about benefits of planting habit for the conservation of our
native Delaware species or how to get started with your own backyard meadow
then Helen will share her knowledge of meadow planting based upon the key
elements of site preparation, timing, seed selection, and maintenance.
Delaware native Helen Raleigh started Story Hill Farm in 2019 to restore
pollinator habitats. The core farm boasts 45 plus acres including the wildflower
meadows, cut flower gardens and a distinctive “Cows Save Butterflies” test plot of
native grasses and perennials that feed her endangered heritage breed Randall
cattle and also feed native Delaware pollinators. With a clear message to “Plant for
pollinators and have fun saving the planet,” Helen Raleigh serves as an inspiring
example of individual action for environmental preservation, making a positive
impact one meadow at a time.
