Project Swallowtail is now open to participants across Toronto!

At its heart, Project Swallowtail is a community that seeks to connect - whether it be connecting human neighbours to each other, or to plants, pollinators and other wildlife. While most of our activities are still concentrated in the original project area in west Toronto, we encourage residents of the City of Toronto to join. You can even start your own neighbourhood Project Swallowtail hub by becoming a block ambassador and accessing support and resources from us!

Connecting habitat

West Toronto was chosen as the project area because ecological connectivity is at the core of our strategy: High Park, the Lakeshore trails, the West Toronto Railpath and the many city parks are already significant habitat. By planting native plants in our gardens, we are helping connect these important habitat hot spots to each other.

Expansion Hubs

Project Swallowtail is growing! We now have three new expansion 'hubs' in the following locations. If you are a resident in one of these areas, please contact us to sign up:

- Etobicoke

- North Davisville

- The Danforth 'Pocket'

Grow with us

Though we are focused on west Toronto, we welcome connecting with individuals and groups beyond! If you are outside the project area but would like to get involved, please contact us.
