Seriously, how amazing is the iconic Monarch Butterfly? Now that spring has arrived, this workshop is perfect for everyone who wants to raise many healthy Monarch Butterflies this coming season.
Maria Romero from the Butterfly Musketeers, the author of "An Educational Guide on Monarch Butterflies" which is an excellent A4 coloured resource book for teachers and children. For the last 4 years she has spoken to over 12,000 children & adults around New Zealand spreading her passion, inspiration and knowledge of the life cycle of the monarch butterflies and the importance of connecting people with nature.
Maria was recently awarded the Christchurch Civic Award for my services to the environment & education in December 2020.
Learn about the many predators the Monarchs butterflies and caterpillars come across and how to raise many healthy monarchs butterflies and create an amazing garden for your important pollinators.
Join her in the stunning back garden of NODE, for a fun afternoon together learning the ins and outs of growing your own butterfly garden at home. For the past four years, Maria has been teaching Kiwis about Monarch Butterflies traveling to schools and garden centers all over New Zealand.
You will learn all about the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly and how to raise healthy monarch butterflies and ensure they are around for years to come by planting heaps of swan plant seeds.
