    We have recently found a number of caterpillars in our school gardens. Our staff and children in our care have been watching their progress over the last few days and they are doing pretty awesome. Unfortunately we have only located a small feed source for them and am actively on the lookout for some more before its too late. I only wish we had found them earlier to have been better prepared for this. It is an amazing project that I will be undertaking with our OSCAR group and hope to eventually have some wonderful beauties around our school community. Is there any other source of food that we are able to acquire urgently for them to feed on. We are based in Waikuku, Christchurch.

    I have changed the topic so that it’s more evident that you need milkweed (swan plant) and added your location… and by posting this message it will move your message back up to the top. 🙂

    Hope someone from down there answers soon, Ourkidz.Oscar
