Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury unveils winner of Pollinator Challenge

Sudbury’s Bev Pugliese loves growing pollinator friendly plants 

Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury has wrapped up its Pollinator Challenge contest, and has picked Bev Pugliese as the winner.

She was one of more than 40 people who submitted photos of pollinator-friendly plants they have grown.

“Bev submitted some beautiful photos, as you can see!” said a press release.

“She enjoys growing plants for all pollinators, though it would be fair to say she has a special interest in the Monarch Butterfly. 

“She was very happy to receive her prize package which included the book ‘100 Plants to Feed the Bees’ by the Xerces Society, a bee and insect house to further support pollinators, a cotton bag filled with information pamphlets about invasive species and gardening tips, as well as several seedlings to help her grow her pollinator space.

“Bev told us that she is looking forward to adding these new plants and new knowledge to her current garden, and we’re thrilled we could contribute!”

Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury is a grassroots network of citizen groups and individuals who share a vision of Sudbury as a green, healthy and engaged community.
