The following describes the constructing and preserving process of the Cuei-Ping Butterfly Garden

◎Exterior construction:
After the Moxa Foundation finished venue scouting in July 2002, they started to set up the exterior iron frames and door in September of the year.

◎Garden arrangement:
After finished the exterior construction, the teachers and students helped weed and grow food and nectar source plants. In December 2002, we held the opening ceremony formally and proceeded to butterfly rearing.

◎Garden periodic maintenance:
Despite the fact that the construction of the butterfly garden had done, it still needed to be examined regularly, especially during holidays and typhoons. As a result, the teachers and volunteers took the responsibility of periodic maintenance to take good care of the garden.

◎Reflections from the Whispering of Butterflies team:
Through the explanation from the teacher, we finally realized that besides providing food and nectar source plants, a sustainable environment should be taken into consideration in butterfly rearing as well. We also thought that when we had free time, we could come to help those butterflies clean their environment with our teachers and volunteers, letting them lead leisure and carefree lives here.
