Project Swallowtail Participants

In October 2020, the first group of Seed Sitters through Project Swallowtail undertook an overwintering journey with native plant seeds. Guided by the knowledge of expert native plant grower Pete Ewins, 40 participants grew over 2,000 plants that were planted all across Toronto during the spring and summer of 2021. Join us to stay engaged with habitat creation throughout the winter, and be ready to plant in the spring!
