Supporting the Monarchy
We started raising Monarch butterflies in 2017. Every caterpillar's journey never ceases to amaze us. The Monarch population has decreased 90% since the 1980s. Loving all pollinators for their cruicial role in our own existence, we set out to help raise awareness by raising this endangered species. What is most essential to this species success is the availability of milkweed, the only host plant for their caterpillars. We have many varieties of milkweed in our gardens, and we grow plenty of flowers for supplying adults with much needed nectar sources. We became a certified Monarch Waystation in 2019!
