No experience needed. Bring your own gloves & tools. We will provide some tools and wheelbarrows.

Directions

Help us plant native pollinator gardens in Elementary or Middle Schools across the US. The monarchs travel South from Canada through North America in the Fall to one place in Mexico for the Winter. A new generation monarch begins its journey North from Mexico to Canada in the Spring. It takes several generations to complete the migration. Both the Monarch and the Milkweed they need to lay their eggs and provide food (leaves) for the caterpillars to eat have declined by over 90%. Please help us plant Milkweed and native plants to save Monarchs and Bees and pollinators.

If you are willing to help plant milkweed, we can match you with a school and find the native plants for your area. If you want to recommend a school for a garden, please feel free to send us an educator contact for the school.

If you would like to travel to Mexico with us in February to see where the Monarchs go in the winter, please sign up for one of our trips.
