Butterfly Garden

Our Butterfly Garden attracts the insects essential for pollinating the vegetable crops we grow at Lakeside.

The Butterfly Garden includes a small pond (home to fish and frogs), flowering plants that provide nectar to butterflies and plants that offer habitat for caterpillars.

The Butterfly Garden is a beautiful centrepiece for Lakeside and a wonderful experiential educational opportunity for local schools and other visitors.

Special thanks to John Poland for planning, planting and managing the Butterfly Garden and to all our garden volunteers who help with maintenance.
