About the site:

The Hodge Podge Patch is located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. Now called Sheffield Mills, this meadow project belongs in the endangered habitat of the Acadian Forest Region which covers Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, eastern Quebec and parts of Maine. The wildflower project will restore the soil and create a habitat for native plants and pollinators to thrive and establish a safe environment for them.  Native varieties of wildflowers will be planted including  rudbekia, asters, and aesclepia. There are over 200 species of native bees in Nova Scotia and the site is on the migration route for monarch butterflies.
