Greenwich Pollinator Pathway is installing a gorgeous mural to celebrate the power of native pollinator plants to enhance biodiversity and create life-restoring habitats for our pollinator insects, birds and local wildlife.
Artist Nelson Rivas has begun to transform a shabby concrete wall on the Post Road in Greenwich into a field of native floral profusion. See the map below for the exact location.
The mural is the brainchild of Myra Klockenbrink, co-chair of the Greenwich Pollinator Pathway. "I want everyone to feel they are a part of this project," says Myra. "That's what art is supposed to do — bring people together.”
"The Pollinator Pathway is the point where conservation, preservation, biodiversity, resource conservation, carbon sequestration and growing and restoring habitat all come together within the human landscape," Myra says, adding, "This is the power of the Pollinator Pathway model and it is what the mural being installed — on the Post Road no less — signifies."
The Post Road Pollinator Pathway Mural project has raised $25,000 to pay for the project, including a generous grant from Sustainable CT. The project is expected to be completed by the end of summer. You can follow the progress of this amazing effort by clicking here.
