WATCH: Got milkweed?

The 2015 #gotmilkweed campaign

While #knit4monarchs is a novel, made-in-Canada approach to monarch conservation, we also urge Canadians to continue planting milkweed in yards, playgrounds and parks. Without milkweed, monarchs can't survive.

That's why we've launched our second annual #gotmilkweed campaign in Toronto.

Monarch butterflies have just started their multigenerational journey northward and will begin arriving in Canada in early summer. You can help welcome monarch butterflies by supporting the #gotmilkweed campaign.

This year there are three ways to get milkweed:

1. Buy a milkweed plant for your yard or balcony;
2. Purchase a Got Milkweed kit, with plants and education materials; or
3. Donate to our efforts to plant milkweed in parks and schoolyards on your behalf.

YES — I want to get milkweed!

Please note, all plants and kits must be picked up on Sunday, May 24 at Toronto's Christie Pits Park.

What's up with #knit4monarchs?

The #gotmilkweed campaign was launched on April 1, 2015 alongside #knit4monarchs, a playful effort that called on Canadians to knit monarch chrysalises. The #knit4monarchs campaign generated much interest and was later revealed to be an April Fool's joke​.
