Butterfly Habitat Restored!

A big shout-out to Jade Armstrong, Heather Shand and family, Pamela Murray and Eamon, James Rolfe and Miriam Palmer for helping to bring the Butterfly Habitat back to life. Swing by to take a peek!

We used a version of “lasagna layering” or sheet mulching, building up layers of wet cardboard and woodchips to suppress weeds and retain moisture. The restoration project took over 50 volunteer hours – a great time to chat, mulch and get to know each other and the garden better.
