Caterpillar Munch Boxes and Butterfly Fuel Stations

A very important part of the Munching Caterpillars mission is to get as many people as possible to help moths and butterflies thrive in their gardens, school grounds and local green spaces by growing Butterfly Fuel and Caterpillar Munch. Adult moths and butterflies feed on the nectar of a range of plants, with some being particularly good for plentiful, accessible nectar. But it’s also really important to make sure that there is food for their caterpillars too! The caterpillars of many much loved moths and butterflies are extremely fussy eaters, needing specific food plants to munch on. That’s where our Caterpillar Munch Boxes and Butterfly Fuel Stations come in – in Dorset and Somerset we potted up and planted out over 3,500 plants in schools, gardens and and in community spaces! But the appetite of the Munching Caterpillar is a big one and in 2017 we’ve gone urban and will be doing the same in Bristol.

Get Involved

If you would like Munching Caterpillars to pay a Bristol school, community group or community event a call then get in touch! We want to help you help the butterflies, moths and caterpillars in your school grounds or garden! Our aim is to plant up grounds whilst also delivering show and tells of some magnificent moths and crazy caterpillars! For now though, why not give butterflies, moths and their very hungry caterpillars a helping hand? Get started without us! Find out what you can plant, and what they will attract, by using the two menus on the right. Take a look at our plant lists and instructions in our resources section and get planting! Then tell us your stories and share your pictures of any munch boxes and fuel stations you have planted. Even better if you have spotted any caterpillars, butterflies or moths feeding on them! Let us know, and we will feature your findings.
