What is the Pollinator Pathways Project?
Wakeman Town Farm, Earthplace, and the Westport Garden Club are joining forces to put Westport on the Pollinator Pathway, a new initiative connecting communities in the effort to save pollinators and promote a healthier planet. Weston, Norwalk, Ridgefield and Darien are already on board, with more towns joining soon.
Pollinator pathways are pesticide-free corridors created from a network of public and private properties that, linked together, provide native plant habitat and nutrition for pollinators. This means that bees, butterflies, birds and other creatures will be able to find the nectar and pollen they depend on to live.
Their search for food makes more food for us: more than 30% of our food grows as a result of the work pollinators do.
So, when pollinators win, we win, because yards and open spaces that are healthy for pollinators are healthier for people and pets, too.
You, too, can join the pollinator pathway, by avoiding pesticides and planting the native plants and nectar flowers that pollinators love. Find out more about how you can help, by attending any of our free talks, and visiting pollinator-pathway.org for more information.
