New Garden Educates Visitors on Pollination and Conservation

The Sasqua Garden Club (SGC) of Fairfield, Connecticut recently collaborated with the Town of Fairfield and the local Boy Scouts to install a native pollinator garden at the Fairfield Museum and History Center. The 400-square-foot garden features aster, goldenrod, milkweed, and phlox, among other plants. In addition to attracting pollinators, the garden will serve as a means to educate visitors about pollination and conservation.

SGC members provided the design and gardening expertise in planning the pollinator garden. On the day of installation, club members were accompanied by the scouts, their parents, and Nella the dog. The result was a fun collaboration and the creation of a garden that supports biodiversity.

Established in 2007 by the Fairfield Historical Society, the Fairfield Museum’s vision is to use history to strengthen community and to shape its future. The 13,000 square-foot museum features exhibition galleries, a special collection research library and reading room, a family education center, and an eighty-seat theater overlooking Fairfield’s Town Green.
