Pollinator Garden

Community Pollinator Pathway projects are volunteer organized gardens. They focus on establishing a pollinator friendly habitat and food source for: bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and others.

The Sherman Conservation Commission has created a pollinator garden in its first stage of growth at Veteran's Field. We plan to continue to add plantings and will expand the footprint of the garden as well. We encourage everyone to come check it out themselves!

You can learn more about Pollinator Pathway at www.pollinator-pathway.org

To help our garden flourish and continue to expand, we need help planting and watering. It is a great activity for volunteers of any age - and a wonderful learning opportunity about our valuable pollinators.

If you are interested in volunteering for either project, please email us at scc@townofshermanct.org
