Dobbs Ferry Pollinator Pathway medallion

Get your Dobbs Ferry Pollinator Pathway medallion at Roots & Wings CSA on Sunday, August 8, 9 - 10 am behind South Church! 

This 5 1/2 inch medallion is now available for you to display in your Dobbs Ferry native garden. The medallion has two small holes so it can be attached to a stake or a fence. For the immediate future, medallions are available from Kathy Dean at The cost is $10 per medallion. The Sustainability Task Force is in the process of adding content to the Sustainable Dobbs Website regarding the pollinator pathway project  We hope to have that info available in September 2021.

How do I qualify to be a Dobbs Ferry Pollinator Pathway Garden?

Any pesticide-free garden that provides food and habitat with pollinator-friendly native and non-native plants is a pollinator garden. Get started with just a plant or two! You can grow your garden gradually. This is not about size - it is about a commitment moving forward. Residents can add anywhere from one pollinator-friendly tree or plant, to a small pollinator garden, to a full meadow.

We only have three requirements to purchase and display a medallion:

1.       Go pesticide/chemical free

2.       Plant native plants

3.       Rethink your lawn (consider organic fertilizer; leave grass clippings on your lawn/mulch mow leaves; convert some lawn area to native plants; leave some leaves in beds/non-lawn areas for overwintering insects)

Special thanks to our pollinator pathway friends in Hastings-on-Hudson and Ardsley who supplied all the know how we needed to design and implement this project.

Happy Planting!
