Butterflyway 
X INDIGENOUS FRIENDSHIP PATCHES

Kits Beach Coffee is an official volunteer with the David Suzuki Foundation and the Butterflyway Program.

The goal of the Butterflyway Project is to establish small habitats in our own communities for local bees and butterflies by planting native wildflowers in home gardens, patio gardens, schools, and any businesses with outdoors plants; while at the same time addresses climate change.

pollinator patches

We are looking for local habitat gardens in close proximity to our cafe  to join our Pollinator Project. We provide all the materials, including seed starter packets and in person/on-going learning opportunities to connect with your local conservationists.

WHY ARE POLLINATOR GARDENS IMPORTANT?

 

85% of pollination occurs from private and individual homes.

We have lost 45% of our insects because of climate change, pollution and loss of green spaces. 

Who Should Join? People who enjoy the following...

 

  1. Walking and spending time around gardens and flowers.

  2. Watching the plants change over the season.

  3. Looking for bugs and being in nature.

  4. Learning about rewilding and conservation at home.
