On the edge of the prairie, sits Dave Egbert's garden, that supports both pollinators and the beautiful Monarchs.

"My tiny garden is in Northeast South Dakota near Lake Byron, SD, USDA Zone 4.  I moved from California in late 2014 and had left behind behind a large garden outside Redding, CA. My new garden is only temporary until I move back this Fall, but I wanted to plant some pollinator friendly plants, especially to support Monarch butterflies. The garden is only two 12x12 beds with a wind shelter fence on two sides to protect the plants from the harsh weather on the Northern Prairies."
