Tom Terrific will present the “Ten Commandments of Butterfly Gardening” program at the Crestwood Community Center, 9245 Whitecliff Park Ln, Crestwood, MO 63126.

The date is Saturday – May 23rd and the program will begin at 10 A.M.and will last until 11:30 A.M.

The program is free and is geared mainly toward adults, but interested children are welcome. This would be an excellent program for Boy and Girl Scouts interested in setting up a butterfly garden.

Tom will show you how to attract and keep butterflies in your yard, patio or apartment balcony. He will talk about site selection, preparation, host and nectar plants, native plants, sun/shade and lots more.

Tom will also talk about what people can do to help the Monarch butterfly whose population is at historic lows.

After the program you are invited to tour Tom’s butterfly gardens in Crestwood to see the 100 butterfly plant species that he grows.

Tom uses pictures, video and hands-on exhibits to teach participants everything they need to know to create a butterfly paradise.

His website www.ButterflyGardening.org is a good place to checkout ahead of time.

He personally guarantees that you will find the program – Terrific!
