The Pollinator Pathway Project is organized by volunteers from town organizations working together to establish pollinator-friendly habitat and food sources for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinating insects and wildlife along a series of continuous corridors. The Westport Pollinator Pathway Project was launched in Spring 2019 by Earthplace, Wakeman Town Farm Sustainability Center and the Westport Garden Club. Since then, many town organizations have joined the project and on April 22, First Selectman James Marpe signed a proclamation declaring this “The Year of the Pollinator.” For more information about the Pollinator Pathway Project in Westport, information about purchasing your own garden plaque and plant resource guides, please visit: https://www.pollinator-pathway.org/westport
Fashionably Westport is proud to support the Pollinator Pathway Program in the following ways:
The signature cocktail, Buzzed Bee, features native local honey from Savannah Bee!
The Beautiful table top decorations include a native pollinator plant. Designed by Kelle Ruden of the Westport Garden Club, they will become door prizes for 12 lucky people to take home! These floral arrangements were made possible by the underwriting support of Lynne Nolan of Compass Westport.
Gilberties have also curated some larger containers with a native pollinator plant included! They decorate our event tonight and are available for sale by Gilberties (see the check in desk if you are interested!)
