Butterfly House Project

Butterfly House Project

Portsmouth City Council By Portsmouth City Council

We need to raise funds to kit out the inside of the new butterfly house with appropriate planting and make it a facility that can host tropical butterflies and properly accommodate visitors.

Southsea Delivery stage

pledged of £41,534

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

.We need to make walkways and flower beds and create the right atmosphere for butterflies to thrive and let the visitors have the best possible experience. We will also encourage native species in the garden through sympathetic planting .

What we'll deliver:

  • Foundations for interior walkways and planting
  • Provide the infastructure by way of drains and services
  • Apply finishes for walkways and borders.
  • Build raised beds and plant - feeding and breeding plants
  • Plant native species plants in the adjacent garden

Why it's a great idea:

People, especially children, love butterflies - this experience will inspire them to engage with nature. Entry is free and we intend to keep it that way so everyone can enjoy the butterflies.

Steps to get it done:

  • Preparation for the butterflies and venue opening
  • Design and installation of butterfly house walkways water features and services
  • Planting the garden for native species

Please help us to develop this wonderful free facility for residents and city visitors.
