DULUTH - The Hillside Public Orchard had a butterfly plant fundraiser Sunday.
If you don’t look closely, it is easy to miss.
It’s a garden right in the middle of Duluth, sitting right along the side of the road.
“It is just amazing, you have chickens that are eating and recycling all of their compost. They’re very knowledgeable about their plants, and which types of birds and butterflies it will attract,” Donna Lundahl, a first-time visitor to the orchard, said.
“There’s a lot of people, just in the neighborhood will be walking by and we normally wouldn’t interact with them. And there’s a lot of people that will ask questions or just stop by to learn what they can harvest,” Jen Stenersen, co-founder of the Hillside Public Orchard, said.
Money raised will go towards making improvements to the orchard, including a new outdoor brick oven to be used by the neighborhood.
