This project is the brainchild of the Hamilton Naturalist Club and Environment Hamilton. The idea is to create a pollinator centre which includes butterflies and bees and any other of the Creator’s creatures that would contribute to pollination. The emphasis is planting native plants. This is the flagship project and Victoria Park has been chosen as the launch site. Paul O’Hara, a landscape designer, who has a local business, Blueoak Native Landscapes on Locke Street, is the designer. He is a specialist in native plants. The girls brought a picture of the proposed design. Michelle asked the question:   How did Mr O’Hara land the contract? The guests did not know about the selection process. The proposed project has approximately $12,000 in funding. Around $3,000 came from the Participatory Budget project, most of the monies had been raised independently and the source(s) were not disclosed. They noted that Clr Johnson may have access to other funding pots. They brought forward June 13, 2015 as the launch date and they brought a flyer they have been handing...
