One woman is taking on the task of establishing a pollinator garden.

Reverend Rebecca Zahrte, alongside her congregation, has turned a one-and-a-half-acre field by the Madisonville First Cumberland Presbyterian Church into a growing garden.

The seed mix selected is based on blooms native to the area and will take three years to reach maturity.

Future plans include landscaping and a prayer and meditation area.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
