I am currently involved in several local projects. I feel that if enough of us work to make our own neighborhoods better places, eventually things will improve globally.
Pollinator Pathway - As part of reworking my yard, I have introduced enough pollinator-friendly plants to have it become part of our local pollinator pathway. Click on the bee to learn more.
I am also excited to be part of a collaboration between Highstead in Redding, CT and The Hickories in Ridgefield, CT that is aimed at creating founder beds of local ecotype wildflowers. The establishment of these wildflower plots will enable us to grow, harvest and preserve seed from locally native wildflowers.
